A Recipe For Happiness

Figs

My husband arrives in Australia today, and needless to say both the children and I are bursting with excitement. We've been here for six weeks without him and finally he steps onto the shores of this beautiful land.

Figs

It never feels right when our little family is apart, it's only when we are all together than my world feels balanced and harmonious.  My Jason is a wonderful father and husband, funny, dedicated, loving, and committed.  What more could anyone ask for??

Figs

He is our recipe for happiness, and as silly as it may seem, I felt compelled to sketch some figs from my sisters amazing fig tree.  Perhaps they are a symbol of nourishment, love, and beauty to me, all of which Jason is to us.

Figs
These were done in my Stillman & Birn Esilon Series Sketchbook, using Sennelier Watercolors and Ink.
