What's on your Workdesk Wednesday: Mother and Child Sketch

Last Wednesday I managed to hit the WOYWW jackpot and made it to #1 on the list!  It took me a while before I could believe my eyes!  I was so "chuffed", as some of you say (I learned this word from WOYWW). To celebrate (and take the chance to say "Happy WOYWW from #1 this week"), I tried to visit everyone, but alas, I ran out of time.  After all, I did have to do some art as well!

On my desk today is a very rough sketch of a mother and child  (Today is my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday, Mommy!)

I made it while I was thinking of what to make for my "One World One Heart" (OWOH) giveaway.  I haven't decided yet but I have to start making it soon to finish in time for this bloggers event that will take place on January 30 to February 17 this year.


And here are some of the ATCs I finished this week...
 





(To find out what WOYWW is and to join in the fun, drop by Julia's Stamping Ground!)   Happy WOYWW, everyone!

Beautiful pencil drawings. Just fantastic!

Love your work! looking forward to it every wednesday! It's so nice to learn new words from WOYWW, I learned 'chuffed' on here too :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I really love those ATCs. I especially like number 1 and 4. I think it's because they aren't straight on and are harder to draw. Of course I have to pick the hard ones, right?

Thanks for stopping by this week. I would have visited, but I was without power on a day when I could have been catching up on comments. I did make it around to everyone last WOYWW, but it was sheer willpower and nothing else.

And I learned "chuffed" from Julia, too.

Beautiful ATCs - Happy birthday to mum!!

Doone said...

Lovely, and I really loved reading your last blog post too, one of the most moving moments in my life was watching my sons play football with the children of the Durban slums, they start out the same but some of our little ones never stand a chance from day 1 to the day they die. And that is something those of us that Do Have Stuff should be ashamed of.

wow what a talent...also hope you have enough cups left for a brew (drink of tea)

Lovely work, Peggy. I love using coloured pencils but haven't used them in my card-making. Thanks for giving me pleasure in your drawing and a good reminder about pencils as a medium.
