Sunday Sketches

Below is my Sunday sketch, hosted by Sophia. (See link to the right) I'm enjoying the weekly challenge to have a new sketch by Sunday and here are a few I worked on this week.


I'm practicing mermaids so I can paint one for my granddaughter someday, and the birdcage and birds are for the WIP from last weekend.
Here is my finished journal page for the Sketchbook Journal tour.

That's all I have for now, and I'm not sure how much painting I'll get done today. Yesterday was my birthday and friends are taking me to a movie today. Yah! We're going to see "Switched." Has anyone seen it yet? It looks like a fun movie.
Have a great day everyone!

Happy Birthday to YOU! I hope you are enjoying yourself. Have fun at the movie, isn't Steve Carrel in that?
Hope you get to indulge in some cake, too!
I love the mermaid sketch, beautiful hair!
So fun to see your journal page too!

Happy belated birthday! I hope you'll enjoy your movie. Do you mean "Switch" with Jimmy Smits where he lands in purgatory and he can only be saved if he comes back as a woman? Sounds like a fun movie.

I love your journal page painting where it looks like the lady is stepping right out of the pages. Very nice!

your mermaid is sweet as can be. how lovely to plan a painting for some day. I have not seen that movie, or gone to the movies in quite a while, perhaps it is time.
Happy Birthday! I wish you a new year full of days that feel wonderful to you!

I love her Debbie and I TOTALLY cannot wait to see her in colour. You're doing a fab job! And hey, I didn't know you were doing the Sketchbook Tour. (Or did you tell me and I forgot!?!)

Anyway, I finally signed up today and created a special blog where all of us sketchbook peeps can do our own posts of our progress thus far.
