New Sketch

Hello and happy Sunday! Below is my latest sketch I started last week.

I think I'll add her to my journal and paint her this afternoon.
Here is my box I started last week...finished now.

I'm thinking of painting another box in pink, for my granddaughter who is due to be born in September. Maybe with an angel on it or a mermaid? I'm still in the planning stages for that project.
And finally, below is a painting in progress:

I really want to try adding some metal but I'm not sure what it will be. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of maybe a bird cage?
Well, that's all I have for now. If you want to see other sketches check out Sophia's blog. (See link on the right)
Have a good week!

This sketch is a great start. Be sure to share her with us when she is finished.

I LOVE how the box turned out!! This would be a great unique gift for your grandaughter.

I like the idea of a birdcage for your latest painting.

Lovely sketch! I love her dress! Love the box too, I have been having a lot of fun painting little boxes too in the last couple weeks :) I think a birdcage would be great for your painting, can't wait to see it finished! :) ~Lauren

Hi Debbie,
Your box turned out wonderful! You're on a roll!! :) Looking forward to seeing your new lovely sketch in colour.

Hi Debbie.

Your sketch is lovely, she looks like a goddess in that dress, something about the bodice reminds me of the old greek or roman goddesses. Love the way the box turned out and painting on a page with words is cool, I am going to try that soon.

Great! yes a bird cage is always good - or some rings.

I love that box. So pretty. I bet a pink one with a mermaid would be gorgeous.
