Misc Sketches - Fine Feathered Friends

Just a completely random drawing ...

Horse crazy

Now, our older daughter is a cinch to come up with an image for ... she's horse crazy.  This initial drawing went over quite well with her.  Now I just need to find time to paint it.

Misc Sketches - Violin

 I have done illustrations/paintings for fam and friends, but it only just dawned on me that I've never actually made any framable art for our own girls.  So this was a sketch I started doing for our youngest... only she wanted one of her with animals instead (she wants to be a conservationist).  So, it's back to the drawing board ... haha literally, to come up with something else for her.

Misc Sketches - Hula Hoop

Enjoying some down time: making silly little sketches.  Yeah, they start out pretty messy.

Illustration Friday - Safari

Did you ever wonder where the animals go when they go on Safari?  I think there may be some pretty wild sites to be seen in the city ... don't you?

Teachers Appreciation week

This week is Teachers Appreciation week!  Have you thanked your children's teachers?

This is first sketch.  I need to lightbox it.  It's going to be the little insert for each of the girls teachers!  Need it done by tomorrow.... got to get crackin!

And the finished piece ....

Quick Sketches - Today's Outfit

Yeah, it's been about a week since I was able to sit down to draw. My babe was quite ill, so all my time was devoted to comforting her.  Now that I finally have time to draw, I need to loosen up and get back into the rhythm of things... so why not ... a quick sketch of today's outfit.  Yes, I know kind of shlubby, but hey give me a break .... let's just say this outfit is "creatively quirky."

Quick Sketches - Windswept love

Quick Sketches -Recital time

Yes, tis the season for recitals and talent shows!  I love listening to the girls play their little hearts out!  And it's fun to look around the room and see all the other parents beaming with pride!
