I did not find time (again!) to sketch something specifically for Sunday Sketches over at Sophia's place. So I decided to share this piece that I finished this past week.
If you haven't had a chance to visit all of the other talented artists that participate, head over to visit, or better yet, just link up, and share a sketch with us!
Happy Christmas Everyone!
Had to share this picture I just finished for my daughters Amira and Rayne! It is totally copied / inspired from the lovely work of Lisa Lectura, and if you haven't had a chance to see her gorgeous big-eyed girls do stop over and look at them soon. This picture is a combination of two of hers named 'A New Dawn' and
'Mother Earth'. Look for them on her sidebar and you'll see the similarities right away.
I wanted to do a mixed media painting for the girls room, and was looking for ideas.
I certainly found it at Lisa's!
This is one of my favorite things about art blogs. I have a really difficult time coming up with poses for some of my work, and I am continually inspired by the artists I find through blogging.
So I have to say thank you to Lisa for this inspiration! This will hang in the girls room for a long time hopefully! And thank you so much to all of the incredible people I have met this year through blogging. I learn something about life, love, friendship, art, struggling, coping, soaring...you name it, every time I visit you all. And each comment you leave is like a visit from a good friend, treasured, savored, really appreciated!
Hugs to you all, and I just wish you such a Merry Christmas!
