On my desk today are two works in progress and the magazine pages that I used for inspiration. I just won a giveaway (which I will show you when I receive it) and so I decided to make something for a giveaway of my own.
I am so thankful for the encouragement I've received from my blog visitors and followers. Without all of you, I wouldn't get to do as much art as I do nowadays. Each one of you is special and these paintings I have started are all about that. I thought of making them when I read the verses in Psalm 139 which say,
"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works!"
I imagine these two women, eyes closed, joyfully thinking about these verses!
So far, I have done the basic lines in a fine pen and some watercolor shading in skin tones.
On the left side of my desk are some gifts from a Japanese visitor - a little mirror and a box that used to contain some cookies shaped like cute chicks like these...
