Finished sketches and new one!

Good morning and welcome to another Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia!(see link to the right) Below are 2 sketches that I colored with pencil and paint. The one was added to my art journal, but I haven't decided what to do with the 2nd one.

I've been trying to improve my side view, so here is one of my practice sketches.

The hand still needs a little work. Another area I struggle with, but it's fun to be challenged.
We had a good service at church today about courage, and it reminded me that we are in a battle everyday, but God has already won the battle. We just need to trust Him.
I hope you are enjoying a restful day!

New Sketch Painting and Book

Hello! I've been busy with different projects this week. Below is my entry for Sophia's Sunday Sketches: (see link on the right)

I also worked on this painting.

And last, I made a new sketch book which will be in my Etsy Shop later today.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend! We just got back from watching Horrible Bosses, which was the funniest movie I've seen this year. I'm still laughing!
Have a great week!

Sunday Sketches

Good morning and welcome to my latest submissions for Sunday Sketches with Sophia. (see link on the right)

I did these both rather quickly while watching tv a couple of nights ago. I hadn't sketched in charcoal in a long time, so it was fun to do something different.
I hope you'll join in the fun and add your name to Sophia's blog! I'm off to see what everyone else has been sketching this week. Have a wonderful day!

Sunday Sketches

Hello and Happy Sunday! My husbands birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I made this painting for him:

It has our letters to each other from years ago, (1985 is the date on mine!) and our kids birth certificates, along with the receipt from my engagement ring. There are a few other memorabilia from our 33 years together. The t-shirt he is wearing is one he actually had years ago. (a play on our last name!)
I think he really likes it since it is hanging in our living room. :-)
I'm off to see what everyone else has been sketching! I hope you'll join me and the others by going to Sophia's blog. (see link on the right)
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
