Creative Tuesdays - Breaking New Ground with Columbus

"There's something about taking a plow and
  breaking new ground ...It gives you energy." K.Kensey

New adventures and experiences can give us energy...don't you think? I do!
Sometimes all we may need is an uncharted course, a little imagination and a dream...
and we can set sail on  a path of new adventure and possibility.

On another note, It's Columbus Day here and I wanted to create
 a simple depiction of this historical character.
 So here he is!
The theme for Creative Tuesday's is
 Breaking New Ground.... and so I thought, what better way to portray the theme 
than an illustration of Mr. Christopher Columbus?

I do hope you enjoy it
