Me in green

 It’s been a busy couple of days. In a super large sketchbook I found this old self portrait. It’s in a section called “Me” where I did drawings of myself  in different styles. I seem to have been a sad girl then, although very creative. It was before I met my husband, and I know I was worried that I’d never find love.

How wrong I was! And how lucky I’ve been. I am so grateful that I found love, and have a loving family. 

And I’m so glad that I studied art, and have had such an amazing time in my artistic life,

Thank you for your support, inspiration and encouragement. Wishing you a day filled with love.

Thank you Evelyn,

No idea. I think I was using pastel and looking at art by different artists.

Have a great weekend! Love your drawings!
