Sunday Sketches AND Sketchbook Challenge
Okay - two Sundays ago, for Sunday Sketches, I shared a journal page painting I had done of my granddaughter when she was about 18 mths. as a butterfly on Halloween. I had decided to redo the painting on a larger scale and drew up a grid to accomplish that. I have not done this before so am pretty proud of myself for trying something with a plan... instead of my normal dive in and go to fast. Anyways, I haven't gotten very far - it's been a busy start to the new year BUT I am committed to progress with my pursuit of improving!!! I am sharing what I have done this week and hope to complete the painting before next Sunday!!! Thanks to Sophia for hosting such a great venue!!! Please visit and see the excellent work!
still working on the face - obviously
Then, two weeks ago, I also decided to participate in the Sketchbook Challenge. It just felt like it was the right combination for me along with Sunday Sketches. The theme for January is "Highly Prized". So, my granddaughter is definitely going to show up finished for that but I have simple things in life that I consider, Highly Prized!!! My morning solitude time. I get up, get my coffee and snuggle under my blanket in a cozy chair by the window into our yard. I sit and watch the birds, rabbits and squirrels scurry around the yard and feeders. It gives me time to clear my head and plan for the day. So, here is my journal entry for the sketchbook challenge - more to come for the monthly theme. Check the challenge out for yourself!!!
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK...make art, make friends - send art, share souls!!!
