Back To My Love Of Drawing

Mommy Taught Me
(Click image to enlarge)

This is one of my favorite drawings called 'Mommy Taught Me.' The inspiration behind it is my dear Mom, who taught me lots of artful things, and my particular fav was sewing.

The person who inspired me to find my hidden-away sketches and art supplies is Vanessa Brantley-Newton.

I’ve recently started following her blog Ooh La La Design Studio and I just get so tickled looking at her work! Vanessa’s so inspiring, she does it all, illustrations, writing books, she sings, she cooks, she’s a Mom, Wife and awesomely beautiful woman inside and out. Check her out!

Thanks Vanessa for getting me (to get my husband) to dig through the dusty garage for my art supplies!! I'm having a ball! :D

Eve, thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. I have been enjoying reading your blog and the openness with which you share your faith and life. This post especially caught my eye. You're drawing is beautiful and comes from such a special place and relationship. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with your dusty art supplies. I also pray that God will open that door and bring the children he has for you into your lives.

Hey, Sweetheart! What a beautiful drawing. This is magnificent in the fact that it needs no explanation. I agree with Nessa, who happens to be my mentor as well, it's a WORD picture. The image says it all.

I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your very kind and encouraging words. I plan to add some things today and hope you'll come by and visit again. Keep drawing, please!

Love and kisses!
