What a fun piece! You really captured the spirit of July 4th!

Thanks Theresa! I enjoy doing "scribbly" pieces! Oil pastels, because they are basically crayons, lend themselves to this technique. At least for me. I rarely blend them.

I just came across your blog and I really like it. It's all very creative and inspirational.
I recently started up an art and crafts blog myself. I haven't had time to post much on it yet, just some old work.
Please have a look and let me know what you think :)
