Let Sleep find you... by Theophilia Let Sleep find you... by Theophilia
Let Sleep find you...
December 14th 2008
Used: india ink, various nibs, watercolor pencils, and pencil.

I made this as a Christmas present for my twin sister (that's her in the picture sleeping). A couple years ago (about 2-3 years ago) I read a book of quotes by the saints and this was one that I remembered, mostly because I teased my twin sister about it. It was kind of a funny, gentle rebuke sort-of-thing, because my twin sister is notorious in my family for falling asleep while she prays. :XD: We actually have a name for it now, we call it "Splaying." :D I guess she's not the only one who does it either, so she's in good company. :D

In case you can't read it, it says:

"Let sleep find you holding your Bible, and when your head nods, let it be resting on a sacred page." ~ Saint Jerome
