Sunday Sketch

I finished my sketch early this week, and I'm looking forward to seeing who else is participating and what they drew. If interested check out Sophia's blog!

Here is my sketch from last week, now completed!

If you guessed she was holding an umbrella, you were right! (I liked the other guesses so who knows...maybe they will show up in a later drawing!) This umbrella has wings, protecting her from the storm. In the grass are the words trust and faith, which is what the storm is growing in her life.
Speaking of growing, look what we found in this hanging planter outside our kitchen window:

Here is what we found inside last week:

A Carolina wren has been busy since they hatched a few days ago. I'm trying to get a picture of the babies, and will post it if I do.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. I love your girl, you finished her beautifully. I like the texture in the umbrella. How fun to get to watch the baby birds grow.

I love the finished one from last week. What a great idea for the umbrella and the words worked into the grass is unique too.

This weeks girl looks like she is going to turn out really well too.

Can't wait to see the baby birdies.

And I love your sketch this week. Her ruby lips are so alluring. Beautiful.

she looks pensive somehow

and it's so wonderful to see the final version - it's always interesting to see how different or similar it gets from sketch to finish

i love your sketch & the umbrella girl is wonderful. Can't wait to see your baby chicks. a sweet pair of sparrows gifted us with a lovely nest on a wreath on our front door. apparently there was too much traffic and they abandoned it :(
