sketch for tuesday {#31 &32}

i’m counting this as 2 sketches. it’s actually 4 so i think that’s fair.  last week was way too busy to get one done, but this week it feels like i’ve been painting and sketching up a storm! …evidenced even by my verse of the day sketchy post on sunday.

anyway, i’m working on some cards so these are little colored sketches that will go on the front of the cards:

i really like the one with the girl and her dog. it makes a cute card:

i hope the recipient likes it as much as i do. 😉

“creative worship”

Today I’m reminded how we’re all called to worship God with the gifts HE has given us.  This little reminder came from my dear mother in law. 🙂  Check it out.

(my sweet mother in law: 🙂 and her dog…


 maybe i should do a painting of them? )

She reminded me that I’m called to give Glory to God in everything I do every day. Part of that is in my work, in my art, in the way I love my husband and friends and family… i could go on and on. But seriously. Go check out Pam’s blog. It explains it better.

Also, I’m so in love with her little cards that she made from her orginal artwork! She put them in frames to show what you could do with the cards….

They are so beautiful!

 And how perfect are these to get a little bit of professional art up in your apartment or first home without breaking your budget? ;0)

so check out her etsy site

i love your work Pam. But I love you more! 🙂 Thanks for the encouragment today!

a girl and her dog

so I have this idea for a card…or maybe a few… what do you think? a girl and her dog? maybe lots of girls and their dogs? i don’t know where i got that idea or anything… ha.


Let me show you my inspiration… 🙂

Do you remember my friend Jenna? Isn’t she cute? yes, I know WAY cuter than me. ha. Way sweeter too… so watch out.

 She’s an artist too. More like a professional one because I’m just an architect wanna be artistic person where as she has her degree in fine art and everything… She’s AMAZING. If she had a blog I’d link it. But she hasn’t gotten into this massive time eater yet like i have. haha. jk. i didn’t mean that. you know what i mean…i link to one blog then another, next thing i know, it’s been an hour… obviously i have time to waste on here and she doesn’t. hee hee.

and remember her dog Charlie? Personally, i think Charlie is an ADORABLE name for a cute little white (Cocker Spaniel/Bicon Frise mix) dog like this one:

how does your heart just not melt? 🙂

so… duh dun dum…. i’m inspired! a girl and her dog –my latest artwork! 

a girl and her dog

but… allorra (as my italian teacher would say rolling her r’s with her whole mouth).. stupid technology… the scanner cut off the verse for this painting. Pslam 46:5 is one of my favorites to encourage me everyday. Click here to see the whole verse

anyway, hopefully it doesn’t creep you out that you were my inspiration Jenna and Charlie! It’s just my favorite to make “portraits” of sorts. Look how well behaved Charlie is pretending to be in this picture! 🙂 hee hee. And of course, Jenna’s parisian style 🙂 she’d totally wear a sweet hat like that…

To see another “portrait” Check out my mother-law’s Christmas present from me. A “portrait” of the family clan…not to mention a VERY nice little blog… 🙂 (also check out the red sweater in the picture… it’s my husband’s christmas sweater that he wears all freakin year!) hee hee.

 see? told you that i  like to do portraits…. not real ones… but ones that capture a little bit of a person that you can connect to but doesn’t have to look just like them…or have facial features… haha… you know what i mean.

anyway. here’s to Jenna and Charlie!

 O. I guess I’ll send a shout out to her husbuddy Justin too…:) 

we are so lucky for friends like you two! and for expensive wine bars…. and for silly dances… and anthropology shopping dates… and nonstop mario cart crazyness…and way too many settlers games… and dog dates… i mean really, if it weren’t for our dogs, we wouldn’t be friends… jk. 🙂 haha.
