Sunday Sketches - Complete!


My apologies for such a delay today.  I had an unexpected opportunity this weekend to visit with an old friend I had not seen in about 12 years.  It was quite enjoyable giving them a tour of the lovely, cozy area where I live, along with catching up.  On top of this, I was very ill a good portion of the weekend.

If you remember, a few weeks ago I had posted my doodle/idea for a caricature of a friend that is heading to India soon to do missionary work for a year.  This is the final approved design which I've started to paint and looking forward to the finished piece.

I do that everyone is having a lovely day.

This week's participants:
Please sign-up below to submit your sketch for this week, which will also allow others to stop and visit.  And please make sure to visit others and comment on their work as well.  This is a community co-op where we're here to encourage one another in art.  Thanks!  :)

  19. Gosh, Sophia- I'm so very delayed in my well wishes to your dad. I am SO sorry to hear of his difficult condition and hope that you and he stay strong through this difficult time..I'm so so sorry. It's very hard to see someone you love so much in any pain or distress. Take good care of yourself and best wishes are with you. HUGS! And you are SO generous with your words..truly. Thank you for your support of my little art world..you really know how to touch people. And keep on with your fabulous work!! I'm so happy to see these recent illustrations..you are blooming, Sophia you really are!

  25. Okay, I've been visiting your site forever...now I want to play, BUT I don't know how your link works because I'm dingy. I added a button to link to your site on my site. I added my info in the link part on your site. Are we only suppose to do that on Sunday? Do I need to do work that is titled Sunday sketches? HElp! :) thanks!

  27. Adding a painting/watercolor sketch that shares another challenge. Hope that is OK? I'm finding that keeping up with prompts encourages me to keep stretching as an artist :)
