I'm Hosting!

The next drawing challenge for this coming weekend June 21-23!
and since it's the Solstice I thought that would be a good theme to work around.

In the Northern hemisphere we are coming up on the longest day of the year...what sorts of traditions
or mind set do you anticipate with the changing season- the mid way point of the year. 
Plans for summer leisure and expansion or gathering and preparing for winter depending on which hemisphere your in...

These markers in the calender ( solstices and equinoxes) have always given me pause to reflect on where I'm going what I've done and what I'd like to do...or better yet who I'd like to be :)

If you'd like to join in the celebration please leave me a comment below and I'll link up to your blog  this Saturday- Remember the drawing challenge is not all about drawing- I think we all love seeing photos, sculpture, books, poems, movies, paintings what ever your heart desires!
Hope to see you then!!
