New Artwork!

For A Moment

A few months ago I took my sons out to a nearby lake for an afternoon. We spent a fair bit of time just walking along the water, looking at rocks, the water, and the trees. When I got home and found this picture I was struck by how my son is every day drawing closer to the man he will become. I can already see so much of that man - he's still a boy, but not for long. In some ways, it's sad to know the little boy is leaving, but it's also a happy feeling to know he's growing up - all in all, cherish each moment.

I'm going to give this a few more days and possibly a few more tweaks. One of my largest CP pieces - I quite like this size.

I really like the perspective on this cp! It fits perfectly with your narrative.
