Celtic Compass Rose



My son-in-law gave me this wonderful book of handmade paper watercolors. 
He's an artist, too. 
You can see his work at Art From the Crow's Nest.

I didn't do anything in it yet for fear of sullying the pages. 
[I have major perfection issues regarding paper.]
Today, I took the plunge, and did this sun design in INK!
I think it will be the next addition to my desk, oriented to the North, of course.
It has a Celtic Wheel in the center and lots of Celtic swirls.


You can see the painting "drink the wild wind" HERE that is on the top corner of my desk.
