Holiday card drawing of person with sun and birds in the background

I drew this drawing because I am so grateful for sandy beaches and warm clothes. I added the clouds to represent the fogy days. I also added a half sun because some of the most beautiful moments that I have spent were sunsets with my family someplace tropical. I used colorful clothes to enlighten some days. I really enjoyed this drawing because there were no mistakes and it all went so smoothly. Thank u so much for judging my photo and have a wonderful day.

My artwork shows our beautiful earth and all the nature that surrounds us. The sunshine of the sun, the mountains, and the flowing water along with the beautiful greenery. My family gets to experience and explore our wonderful planet.
