scenes from my sketchbook

every day is a gift print by tammie bennett

today i'm sharing one of my recent favorites from my daily sketchbook.  when doing my daily sketch page, i only use black and white becauseit makes it so much easier to create a page when i don't have to worry about color.  

i created this after hearing about the death of a family member of someone i only know on the internet but it struck me with sadness.  

every night before i go to sleep i spend a moment in gratitude that my family is healthy, safe and happy.  every single night that i go to bed after a healthy, safe and happy day, i know i have been given a gift beyond measure.  even if i whispered, "thank you" every second of the day it wouldn't be enough.
