Hanging Laundry

It's been raining here for over a week now.  Quite depressing and really doesn't help one's mood in the midst of things.  Sigh.

Regardless, I've been facing/tackling as much as I can these past few days and tonight is the first time since Saturday that I've had the opportunity to pick up my sketch pad and pencils.  This idea has been floating around in my head for quite some time now and I'm glad to have the first draft put to paper.

One can only imagine what the final project will look like...hmmm.

Do you notice anything particular about the laundry? =)


  1. Sophia, I am in awe of your talent. I was reading your post below this one and I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling and dealing with at this time. I've been where you are, it's so very painful. Cherish every second you can with your dad; all other things will fall back in place when you need them to. You and your dad will be in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace to still the chaos and strength to steady your pace. Wishing you lots of love beautiful Sophia. xOxOxO

  2. I hear ya!!! darn rain anyways!!! I have had enough too, and finally we have a sunny day today!
    our basement flooded from the rain this past week so I too could not see another raindrop for a while and be quite happy...

    and lovin the striped socks of course!

    Smiles and hugs

  6. Oh my, I love sheets hung on the line and remember in Ohio, hanging the clothes out to dry and the fresh sweet smell of everything! and also running outside to gather it all as the rains were coming down; what fun Sophia!

  7. Hello my friend,

You are so lucky to have rain....we are desperate for rain here, we haven't had any for the months...we are on water restriction the gardens, trees and crops are suffering.....send the rain to us in France...we want rain.... love your sketch...the only thing unusual I think are the man pants...but I could be wrong...have fun...

  11. This conjures up such wonderful memories of my grandmother and summers at her place. I can just smell the freshness of laundry on the line.

    Thanks for you words on my bunny post the other day. It was all so emotional.

  12. well, it does look like it is a mans clothing. So either you are helping your dad out or you have a man in your thoughts? Very cute sketch.
