Lullaby Book-Sweet Chariot

Here's another illustration for my lullaby book.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot

I didn't always think of this song as a lullaby, but more of spiritual hymn. But, I had looked for lullaby's on the internet and one person mentioned it. It seemed soothing and appropriate and I always like it. So now it's in my little list of lullaby's.

I know the song mentions angels and not Pegasus', but hey, I got a chariot in there, and who's gonna pull in a sky chariot other than a Pegasus? Think about it? Eight flying reindeer? I'd prefer a Pegasus.

Here's Swing Low Sweet Chariot:

By saving this illustration to be viewed quickly on the web I had to save it as a lower quality, which is why the comet is dithered. I will post a jpeg, but it will load slow. Scroll down to see my original sketch.

Slower to load but better quality (I hope)

So, that's the most recent illustration for my Lullaby book, a book I'm making for my son, and my nieces and nephews, (and for myself) so we can sing together and hopefully, remember these lullaby's.
