Good morning! I was inspired a few months ago to paint this first picture, but it took me awhile to get all the details just right.

Here is another page finished in my Sketchbook Journal Project:

I still have this afternoon to play in my room, so I should have more pages finished for the book I'm making.

New Sunday Sketch

Hello all! Below is this weeks Sunday sketch, another page in my granddaughters book. (see link to right if you want to see other wonderful sketches)

I'm on vacation tomorrow, so I hope to have at least 2 more pages ready to show. I'm getting close to the end! I'm sure you've been able to guess what will happen when the people return from their vacation. (smiles)
I'm heading over to Sophia's to see who else signed up this week. Have a great day everyone!

Sunday Sketch

Happy Sunday everyone! Here are my sketches for this week...more pages in my granddaughters book I'm making for her.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away already, and then Christmas soon after! This year has really flown by! I have 1 more class I want to take, Alisa Burke's color theory. Has anyone taken it? Her post is very encouraging about drawing every day. I've tried before to find time for it everyday, but it's so hard to do, since I work full time. Does anyone else have that same problem and have you found a way to make time?
Well, I'm heading over to Sophia's blog to see what everyone else has been sketching this week. Have a wonderful day!
