sunday sketches and having fun!!!

Well, I had the best meditative time finishing my butterfly journal page.... it was just as good as getting a massage... well, maybe not that good!  The point being that it held my focus to color in my tiny little wings and the colors made me smile!  It is good for the soul!







Then I had more fun sketching and painting my cousin Cat!  She was at a Motley Crew concert and this is a copy of a picture taken of her.  Unfortunately, I didn't do her justice she is so beautiful and my painting is a bit off but I had so much fun attempting to do a quick portrait on sheet music.  So Cat in Concert....
Cat in concert!
Have a great weekend and be sure to stop by all the Sunday Sketchers!!!!  Thanks to Alexandra for hosting!
Please keep checking in as I will continue to post about the Liberate Your Art postcard swap hosted by another Kat!

cheers, dana

Well I was going to ask if you named her Cat because she was born with whiskers...

That's a beautiful butterfly journal page. Drawing can be very meditative for me especially when I'm working with patterns.

Fun capture of your "cat" on paper!

Butterfly just is so life-like. Must have taken you a long time to finish it! But it is remarkable!

Awesome choice of backgrounds! The butterfly is so pretty and neat. What a steady hand to paint those tiny spaces.

Oh these are really great. Love the cat face girl - such fun!

Your completed butterfly is beautiful - I love the colours, so gentle, like the butterfly. And it looks so good on top of the background text.

As for your cousin - is she still speaking to you? But it's a good sketch of one of the ways you think of her.

Thank you for the really encouraging comments you have made on my last two blogs - thank you. Regards, Jez
