Sunday Sketches




It's another wonderful week of doodles and whatnot and I'm really excited!  I look forward to Sunday Sketches, pulling up a chair with a hot cuppa in hand, visiting everyone.  Each of you have become such an intricate part of my life.  I'm so blessed and my heart couldn't be happier.  Uh huh.

Above is one of the many custom orders I've been trying to knock-out this past week with everything else going on.  You can see my finished product (which is a greeting card) along with the step-by-step.  This piece pushed me a little past my comfort zone with adding some significant line-work in order to produce a more realistic feel of a patch of purple and pink hyacinths.  My customer is thrilled and this particular painting is on it's way to Maryland for her special friend.

Happy Sunday Sketches to each and every one of you!

  2. Pretty flowers! Maryland's not too far from Delaware, so I'm sure the card will make her friend feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even though it's so cold outside.
