Sunday Sketches . . . Carried Away With Love


I have been doing less painting and more sketching lately. I actually started a canvas last weekend and stalled out by Monday with it. Not sure if or when I will get back to it. Sketching is so much easier for me and freeing. I do not have to think about color palettes or being perfect. I just have a pencil and an eraser. Although I do long to paint some of my sketches but it overwhelms me lately. And that in itself is frustrating.

I am having fun though getting back to my cute girls! She came about from an image in my head. I always incorporate hearts when and wherever I can! It was not until the next day when I looked at her that the words came to me.

I would like to get this scene on a canvas and as I have started taking "She Art" with Christy Tomlinson I am hoping to use this as inspiration for a piece in that class!

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday so far! You can check out the lovely art being shared today over HERE!!
