Today isn’t the first day of school, but I’m back at work setting up my science lab, so it’s feeling like summer’s over. The students start tomorrow, and I’m sure they’re feeling the same way I am. We all are. Things are changing. Summer is winding down, school year’s starting up, the weather is slowly shifting into breezier and cooler territory, and it’s all too soon.

So, my page of the day is an affirmation for days like these: I feel hopeful for what’s next.

I’ve colored this page a few times, both digitally and with colored pencils, and I love it. It’s as easy or as challenging as the colorist wants it to be. You can color every single open space the same shade and it’ll look awesome, or you can make every space a different color and again – awesome. Here I’ve done a bit of both. Photoshop and I had a minor falling out when I was doing this one, so I decided to leave the background and the outer rim the same, and I love it. The black provides a nice contrast to the light green. Really, you can do a lot with a page like this.

And I do feel hopeful for what’s next. I’m working three days a week this year, I’m consulting, I’ve got several new coloring projects in the works including one that I don’t have a printer for yet (more on that soon), and my little guy is starting preschool. Preschool!

What are you hopeful for that’s coming up next?
