mover of mountains

"that's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity.
simple can be harder than complex:  you have to work hard to get your thinking
clean to make it simple.  but it's worth it in the end because once you get there,
you can move mountains."


words of wisdom......






from technology's mover of mountains.





{created using koi watercolor,  derwent inkense pencils,
waterbrush, micron pens, graphite pencil, hand-carved leaf stamp, pigment ink}

{p.s.  please join me on monday for some exciting news!! 
have a great weekend!  :))}

I was wondering if you sell any of your beautiful artwork; I love the piece that you made using a quote by Steve Jobs. I would love to hang this in my classroom.
