New Sketch for SS!

Good morning and Happy Sunday! I've been wanting to do another oil painting of my son's kids for quite some time, and finally got the picture printed out yesterday. I've started on the sketch too:
Here is the original picture I'm using:
I could really use your prayers, as I was sick then got a rash that is painful. The Dr's are checking me for allergies and a virus, but I don't know yet what is wrong. It's been a very scary week since I broke out.
I'm linking with Sunday Sketches today, and hope you will join me in seeing what other artists are making. Have a good week!

Happy New Year!

Goodmorning and I hope everyone has a blessed New Year in 2015! I felt like I accomplished so much that I've been wanting to do in 2014, but still have a long way to go. I always try to find time to create everyday, but that seems like an unrealistic goal, with work and all. One of my goals, is to try to work more with oil paints. How about you? Any new goals for the new year?
Below is a painting I started several months ago, and finally have it at least close to being finished. It's from a dream I had many years ago. I showed it to a couple of friends, but they didn't seem to like it. I couldn't tell if it was the subject or its just a horrible painting. (I admit the wings need some more work!) What do you think?
I've been sketching more. Here are just a couple.
I'm linking to Sunday Sketches with the very talented Alexandra. I hope you will join me!
