Sunday Sketches... More Angels!


An Angel Fish with an Angel Food Cake!
(I'm finding it difficult to let go of the "Angel" theme. ha!)

Please be sure to stop by Sophia's blog to see the heavenly offerings of my sketching buddies.

And don't forget...


The bidding for Inspiration Avenue's Charity Art Auction to benefit Angel Faces starts today!

Since I'm on the topic of angels, I would like to take this opportunity to thank a couple:


First, Rhonda gave me a "Stylish Blogger Award".  I think I first 'met' Rhonda during the One World One Heart Blog event, but now we party together every Friday for PPF.  Rhonda was the one who inspired me to create my "Helping Hands for Japan".  Rhonda always has lots of fun projects going on at her blog, Roban Studio!  
Thank you Rhonda!
(I already received a "Stylish Blogger Award" here, but I am very thankful to you for thinking of me!)


And last, but certainly not least, I would like to offer a great big "Thank You" to Lisa Stubbs of 'Lil Sonny Sky for sending me the beautiful mermaid print pictured above!

Lisa is an extremely talented artist that creates amazing fabric art and original hand squeegeed screen prints (like the one I received)!  Be sure to check out her etsy shop - it is filled with treasures that will make you smile from ear to ear (I know I am)!

How did I find myself in possession of this wonderful gift?

I am a regular reader of Lisa's blog and was delighted when I saw the fantastic mural she was painting at her children's school!  (You can see the mural and it's progression by clicking here.)  By her week 10 "loo update" post, she was nearly finished and looking for caption ideas for her sea inspired mural.  Well, you know how I love to play with words (and I can't resist putting my 2 cents in either! hee hee)...  The bonus:  The person who came up with the caption that she decided to use would win one of her mermaid prints!  I'll give you one guess who won!

Me.  Lucky, lucky me!  Wheeee!

I love, love, love it - Thank you Lisa!

  13. ah, your angel fish is so cute. Angel is a wonderful theme to explore.

    Thank you for the Picasso link, I had never seen that I do see why you thought of it from my piece. I did an initial ink of just the lady and the bear and it is so reminiscent of this Picasso!
