    A well earned rest I'd say. The sky the clouds and PJ's turned out very well.

  4. Thanks everyone, oh and Andrew, I even went back and softened the edges of the Satellite because after I went to bed last night I could hear you reminding me of hard and soft edges, which, for some reason, I always forget when I am working digitally.

    It is very beautiful and very well done. congratulations. Good for you, because I could see unfinished work as well as if it had been!
    Congratulations again.

  8. ooo Karen! I'm so glad I checked back today. You finished it and it is fabulous! Love the hair texture... WOW and his PJs are so cool! Nice work. Great mood with the clouds and colors! I saw on another blog that you met Susan. That is so cool. She has been in my prayers. I'm sure you told her that we miss her.
