... exploring in my creativity further in 2017



28 February 2011

Creative Tuesday - It was the angel's bedtime...

and she fell fast asleep on her irresistibly soft pillow-top cloud. Immediately she started dreaming of....


poker playing sheep?

Who knew!!??
(Initial pencil sketch)

Was I dreaming when this popped out of my head as I thought about Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday theme of Bedtime? Who knows!? (It sure surprised me!)

I hope all of you, my wonderful art friends, have a great almost two weeks. It is extremely likely that I will  be out of touch as I am leaving soon on vacation and then have guests arriving immediately upon my return!  See you at Sunday Sketches on March 13th. 

And stay tuned - the big debut of what Kristin and I have been plotting is March 18th! Save the date! We hope you will come play with us!!
