Sunday Sketches



Happy Sunday Everyone!!!

We had a few sunny days here in the Northwestern part of the US, but that was just a dream as the rain and clouds are back today!!!
So tired of the rain, and that is saying something as I just love the Northwest weather.

Above is a sketch I worked on today - trying something a little edgier...Not really sure what I think, but fun always to try something new!  messed up on the eyebrows so decided to add a bandana, which turned out to be more difficult that I thought.


And this is a sketch I am playing with for a possible customer, who wants to see what I can do with a specific theme...I'll let you know how that progresses.

How have you all been?  Still not getting around to all of your lovely blogs as much as I want to, been so darn busy, but good news is...Drum roll...I sold my first piece of art, and a local business has agreed to display some of my gicle canvases - I am over the moon excited to see how they are recieved!

Be sure to pop over to Sophia's place 'Blue Chair Diary' and check out all the other participants!  So much artistic talent and lots of lovely people!

I miss you all and hope your week has been lovely and full of all that is Spring!!

Hugs and S M I L E S!!!

Julia
