What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Bibi

Uh oh, it is another one of those days when I will only show you a small part of my desk because the other parts are in shambles.

Having nothing new to show you for our regular Wednesday link party, I decided to get out my folder of magazine clippings and do a quick sketch.  Not a very good likeness but I am just using the picture for inspiration anyway.

For a change, I chose an African model.  And so of course she needs an African name.  I decided to name her "Bibi", an East African female name meaning "daughter of a king."

This is what I always tell my daughter when she feels insecure about something, or compares herself with others who have more than she does.  You are the daughter of a King!

"And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty."2 Corinthians 6:18

Linking up with all the other folks showing off their desks for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

That is, as ever, stunning, but the way you say "a quick drawing" is another kind of "stunning!" :D

Well that’s an amazing sketch Peggy and you say you just did it quickly…..I’m in awe!
I think you’ve captured the essence of “Bibi” perfectly.

Oh, and you shouldn’t be ashamed to show your shambles….sorry I mean desk because I’m sure we’ll see far worse on our Wednesday travels, Lol!

Well,because I worked down and am late I saw Bibi in your next posting and commented. I so enjoy looking at your artwork as what stage it is in. Love this - absolutely beautiful.
Only just had my WOYWW posted as I have been away and now am hoping someone can guess where I have been - little prize for the first to do it. Hugs, Neet #133
