Sunday Sketches

I am gone for the weekend so had to post this extra early.

It's another in a series I am doing. I am not sure if I will add color to this one or not...I just love the black and white.

On another note...reservations are completed and we are on the early international sailing to Victoria BC! Two nites of fun AWAY from home! Yeah!

Smiles everyone! Hopefully I can steal my daughter's laptop and so be able to visit all of my favorite Sunday Sketches while away!

Beautiful sketch - you are one talented lady.

I spent a year living on Vancouver Island and never went to Victoria. Silly. Have a great time!

I can't tell you how much I just love this image! What a magical tree you created!

Have a wonderful time in Victoria!

I really love this one. I think perhaps if you add colour to it it should be on another copy...
Hope Victoria was good to you all!
Have a great week, full of inspiration, Julia Christie!

Oh, I am totally loving your tree series. Oh yeah! :) This one is just as amazing as your first. Rock on!

EVA said...

What a great tree! With such beautiful gifts!

I agree with everyone that I'd love to see it is colour too!

And the one for Sophia is beautiful!

Annette Q said...

Oh wow! Just seen the close up and I love it. What a beautiful tree with such important words :-)

Julia Christie said...

thank you everyone for your kind words! These two were particularly fun to do because they just flowed out of me...there was no struggle. I love when that happens with my art.

Now on to more writing!
