Face of Eternity

As some of you know my husband went into the hospital for a hip replacement. He is doing awesome by the way.

I went to the nurses station to get some ice last night for him and they had this circulating down there. She ran me off a copy and I just had to share! I also want to give the lady credit that sit and drew this. WOW WOW WOW On the paper is says it was drawn by, Pam Cedotal.

It’s called, “Face of Eternity”. Isn’t it awesome! Man what some detail and some thought! When I first saw it I couldn’t take my eyes off it. I sure hope you can see it. I took a pic of it so I could share.
