The word for Illustration Friday  today on January 1, 2010 is renewal.  These little illustrations show renewal in many ways.  Our resources must be renewable (represented by the fish for consumed goods and food, and by the egret as a reminder to take care of the only planet we have).  It is mandatory that our faith be renewed daily (represented by the little bird, why do birds make me think Christ?).  The children remind me of the constant renewal of curiosity and desire.  And these small silhouettes are reused book pages, colored with pencils, giving the falling apart books renewed life.  (I would never cut into a perfectly good book!) 

Okay, so I am overly sentimental today in my post.

I pray that 2010 brings you joy and contentment.
