Cultivating Basil Beginnings in Colored Pencil - ©CindyRippe2013
While working on collections for my online classes and ebooks I found this Basil plant drawing.  I taught it several years ago, as an introduction to colored pencil techniques, and it's part of a series of herbs.  I haven't seen it for a while so I was surprised to see that the perspective on the rim of the pot was wrong. It's not perfect but I don't mind. My original drawing is correct.  I'm sure I was distracted when I worked on the metal tag which I really like.

It reminded me that we are all growing, like the basil plant. The steps we take, the lessons we learn, are all a part of becoming who we are meant to be.  Maybe we're not perfect......but we all have good qualities that make us happy.  Concentrate on the happy and keep growing!

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Philippians 3:12
