I’m sitting here on a quiet afternoon, sipping a latte and checking into blogland! I have a few favorite sketches to share and a painting. Yes I finally put something together with color…lol. First tho, the sketches. They have been in my sketch journal…just pencils and charcoal.
This image came together quickly and I kept going because it reminded me of a couple people close to my heart. There is a photo (in a drawer upstairs) taken by a professional photographer in a the back of a grocery store when my sis and I were very small. I am the older sister. I think it was the first photo taken of my sis and I when she wasn’t a baby. So it showed a relationship of her and I. My Mom always loved that photo because it was one of the only photos my baby sister ever smiled in. Ahhh. Anyway…it’s strange how sketching can bring forth memories like that! This sketch also reminds me of the relationship between my daughter and myself.
This next journal sketch looks wonky but it was fun. I’m all about fun with sketching and keeping going until something happens! I drew the figures almost entirely without lifting the pencil. I need to do that more.
This canvas has have so many lives. It’s been painted over a few times now. This morning I sealed it. Done deal.
It’s so rich in texture. That is probably my fav part…but I also love the wonky flowers.It’s a pretty big canvas. I think it’s 18×24.
I’ll wrap up this post with that little looky loo who always make me smile….hope you are having a great day!
