Sunday Sketches

Good Sunday Morning! 

For more wonderful artists sketches, please head over to Blue Chair Diary, and visit our talented hostess Sophia and all the other participants!  Or join us by sketching something up and posting a link at Sophia's place.
I'm excited to show a work in progress I am working on in my series of colorful women.  This gal will be all pinks and black and white...
I'm really excited as I have had the owner of a local gallery that also specializes in printing fine art offer to work with me on this series, and I may be able to eventually have a show in his gallery!
So I am working on completing this series of five and getting them printed in gicle on canvas.  I have two done already and they turned out wonderfully and need to complete this gal and two others!  Very fun and exciting!

Can't wait to see what everyone has sketched this week!  I am off to cut wood with the family to build up a store for next winter, but will stop by and visit everyone when we get back!

Smiles and hugs to you all, and thank you for all the wonderful comments last week when I was sick with a cold and tired due to having our floor replaced.  Your comments mean so much and always lift my spirits!
I will be posting pics of the new floor soon to share with you.  It was definitely worth it and turned out beautifully.

I love PINK! This will be lovely! Also, I remember going out in the woods with the family to cut firewood stock for the winter! Fun times, I miss them! My kids are all grown now and don't use firewood except for fun on the patio!
