The Story Revealed and A Winner

Hello all and welcome to this weeks submission for Sunday Sketches with Sophia. (See link on right) But first, the story I've been writing for my granddaughter is finally told! Here it is in short form: Olivia the owl, decides that she has outgrown her home, so it's time to move! She searches high and low, but nothing else is as nice as her own home is. The birds nest is outside in the bright sunlight, the cave is too cold, all of the other trees are filled and the rabbits nest is full too! She goes home and decides to give away her boxed stuff, that she's not using anyway, and low and behold, her house is perfect for her again! There's even room for another chair so company can visit!
The only person who mentioned, moving was

Great guess Jehanne! You win, so please let me know by email (cocains@yahoo.com) what you would like from my shop and your address. Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments each week!
Here is something new I've been working on:

I'm currently taking Jane Davenports "I Heart Drawing" and it is really fun! She has a great way to teach how to draw bodies. The next lesson is about hands! I can't wait for that one, since I've always had trouble drawing hands!
Well, I'm heading over to Sophia's to see the other submissions this week. I hope you will join me!
Have a great Sunday and week!

I hate drawing hands.... so I hope to pick up some tips as you learn about them... my friend Tracey Potter is wonderful at painting them and is always trying to convince me to get in .... but if many years of art school didn't cure me, I am figuring i am a lost case... great painting and story and I look forward to my next visit...xx
