Day 11/12 -A Good Day to Fly


Spent yesterday in ink. I drew this fairie from one that was sitting on my shelf. I started out in pencil, but for some reason I have no patience for pencil. Not my medium. I went to the pen and whatever pencil lines I thought I would keep, I didn't. Today I added the bird and gave it color. Yesterday at my mothers house I kept seeing cardinals and blue jays. I love seeing them in winter, especially cardinals. Although it has been warm, no snow and for this I am very grateful. I don't like the angle I put the fairie's leaf wing on, oh well....
They are discussing flying lessons.

I could comment on every piece you have done. I LOVE the Guardians, without and with colour, and your leaves. I also enjoy the stories that you have with each piece. I am very pleased that you are doing the Daily Devotions, I can look forward to seeing some beautiful work every day.
Thank you.

Hey I just love this one, I like the idea that they are comparing flying lessons. Colors are nice & so is the overall design...you are cookin'.

I love not only the drawing, from the colors and the wonderful whimsey of the faces...I love the thought of them discussing flying lessons.....It is so hard to keep up with all the blogs & postings, but when I come across work like this, it makes it so worthwhile to try and keep up and not miss anything.
