I try to keep up with my Sunday faces. I always draw them just never post them on the same day. So once again I have a backlog. I'm not posting all of them, just the ones I like.

Last night I learned something about myself. I am not a person who can stick to one style of art. I like everything and my mood changes. So I'm going to stop trying to be like others and be myself as I have done with the rest of my life. Here is some of my art musings from yesterday and I'm happy.

The CED theme for this month is books. I attempted a painting of the book jacket. It's called Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco. It is a story of compassion and hatred. It made my heart sad. I pray that we could learn to love as God intended.
Although I am on Spring Break I have a student portrait for my calendar. I did the whole week Friday.

Just playing around with sketching, trying to finish my sketchbook one.

I love books and I challenge myself every year to try to read more books. This year my goal is 80 books. I like to include a variety of books including children's books. My husband said, "that is not a book." "I told him that it is because you do have to read it." Although all my children are grown-up I still like the children's area. I usually pick books because of the art work, then the story. I picked up Maddy Kettle just for that reason. I love the art work. I usually check out the bio of the illustrator. Eric Orchard is from Canada and I found it interesting that he talks about his depression. I copied a small portion of his book cover featuring Maddy.
I struggle to complete my sketchbooks. Lately I've been obsess trying to complete my "Sketchbook One." My goal is to get it finished so that I can move on to some new sketchbooks I wanted to try with the no-bleed paper. Here are two of my sketches.

I had an extremely long day yesterday and when I sat down on the sofa I fell to sleep. So I didn't post my Calendar Illustration for March 17th.
