Papa's Little Darling in Color! -Paint Party Friday

Hello, sweet Friends.  Here is the finished drawing for dear Papa.  This is his sweet little Great Granddaughter.  I scanned it into the computer, and there's a slight pink to the background I wasn't expecting.

You can see my original model and sketch here.

Today is a melancholy day.  I'm not sure why, but sadness tinges the hours.  I'm alone for the second day after having friends and family here for over three weeks.  I think I miss all the wonderful activity and sounds.  I will feel better soon--with the sun shining so beautifully, it will be hard to stay melancholy.

Happy Paint Party Friday, sweet Friends--thank you SO much for dropping by.  Your comments are so encouraging to my heart.

Flight -Paint Party Friday

Somehow there is hope and beauty in this drawing.  I love how this turned out.  One can almost feel the wind whispering through her hair as she watches the flight of the geese.

Hope.  It is the best of things--What blows me away is that God is called the God of Hope.  I don't know what I would do without hope in my life.

Blessings and peace to each of you dear ones.  Thank you for your wonderful comments.  You make my day every time.

Just Out of Reach -Paint Party Friday

A friend of mine who struggles to find words asked me to draw them as birds, just out of reach.  She describes the feeling of being on the edge of knowing what to say, but the words allude her.  I was once terribly shy--and in some circumstances, I still am--so I understand this helpless feeling of wordlessness.

This is the first of four drawings.  She gets to keep the one she likes best.

Have a great weekend, dear Friends.  Thank you for dropping by--your visits and comments are such an encouragement to my heart.  Happy Paint Party Friday!
