What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: WIP


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...

That's it for today when all over the world, people are showing off their desks for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Come join us!

Fabulous work as always...I wish I was finding greatness up in my attic, as I clear it out, but most of my art work are cartoons, which are going very yellow! But surprisingly, they are attached to lots of memories too!Have a great week, Happy WOYWW ((Lyn))) #66
