Sunday Sketches

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Sketches - one week before Christmas.  Whoa!  Can you believe it?  (Before I forget, SS will be postponed next week but will resume the week after Christmas.  So, please make note.)

Nothing fancy or special this week as I've been terribly busy with all of the hussle and bustle going on this Chrstimas season. I've devoted alot of my time helping and giving to others in hopes to occupy my mind and heart since it's the first year without my father.  :(

Red velvet cake is my favourite, especially during the Holiday season.  So here's a quick painting of a delicious slice that caught my eye on the shelf at a local bakery. Yum!

OK.....off to visit everyone!

  2. Hi Sophia,
    How I love going to the bakery to pick out pastries, sweets and cakes to take home. You've really made me crave cake now with your delicious-looking watercolor. I thought that was a palette knife next to the painting as it looks very 3-d.

  13. Yum!!! I'm on a diet right now. Not a great time to start a diet, but I'm not comfortable with my body lately. I've always been very thin, but age tends to add me some weight... :)
