Craft Barn Challenge 13 Path and Horizon

Hi Everyone! Today I am linking up with the Craft Barn's quotes & lyrics challenge using path and/or horizon.  I had no trouble coming up with a quote I liked; only with how I was going to illustrate it....and then it came to me! The quote I used was one from Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.  Here is my ATC, the format I have chosen for this challenge:
Just a quick sketch, some watercolors and some black Sakura Pigma pen.

Thanks so much to the Craft Barn and DT for hosting this challenge and pushing me beyond my comfort zone!

Once again, I'm SO impressed with your drawing skills. You have a knack for making things look realistic. I'm sure the quote inspired you to create these trails and the little creatures that made them. The quote and art act together so well.

Those who have gone before us sometimes motivate some of us to strike out on our own, this is so true and your quote card is a great reminder. Great choice <3

I love your interpretation of this quote - I will now always think of it when watching the ant trails in the summer. The ants are fantastic.
