The other night I dreamed that I was painting a giant, bigger than me painting, and I was having so much fun! Alas, this week has been full and I’ve only had a few moments to work in my sketchbook. Today’s a busy one with yard work, my parents arrival, and fun routine things like mammograms. No-that one is not fun 😬 But with all of that, here’s summer sketch 26 of 70. Hope you have a fab Friday!
Love this shirt from @homeasart! 💕 We are his workmanship, created by a creative Creator not just to do good works, but be good works. We are his perfect creation! Ephesians 2:10
20 years of marriage today. This life is just so much better with him by my side. It really just keeps getting better! @redmond_firearms
The daisies have exploded in my yard, and they always remind me of my childhood. I love the way they dance around in the breeze. Happy daisies for happy summer days! 💛 . “Be Happy” 20x24, available in the shop.
Don’t let all those abstracts fool you, florals will forever be my first love. 💕 . “Give me Roses and Tell Me I’m Pretty” Sometimes all a girl needs is a little bit of affirmation and I think flowers are one of the best ways to let a gal know “I think you’re pretty swell”. . 10x10 on a deep canvas, purchase through my Etsy shop-link in profile.
We spent the last 5 days camping with friends...I highly recommend it. There’s something about unplugging and getting away and spending lots of time on a paddle board. I made some time for sketching in between card games and campfire time and hammock naps. So here are summer sketches 19-25 of 70.
Abstracts and Florals that totally compliment each other 💕 . . . . . . #contemporaryart #abstractpainting #happycolors
Resisting the urge to fill the page. A lot like life. We are in a culture where we are bombarded with the message to buy more, add more, fill up the spaces, fill up the schedules, fill up our lives. And all we get from that is clutter and excess and stress and probably debt too. I’m learning in life that less really is more. Also in my art. This is hard. But such an important part of the journey. . This is summer sketch 18 of 70, and I’ve got to pick up the pace if I’m going to finish all 70 before school starts back up! . . . . . #abstractsketchbook #sketchbookart #cotfasketchbook #gdasummersketch #calledtobecreative #happycolors #happyartistmovement #minimalart
