The Sketchbook Challenge

My friend Karen from Creativity Cake told me about The Sketchbook Challenge.

DSC_0108The project began on January 1, 2011.  Each month there is a theme.


DSC_0108This month the theme is OPPOSITES.

DSC_0108There is a wonderful group of women hosting the challenge and offering tips, tutorials, and techniques.  There are also prizes awarded from some pretty amazing sponsors.

The Sketchbook challenge blog has a wonderful post about The Sketch-In.

The song for this post always makes me happy, just like sketching with my paintbrush.  Mindy Gledhill sings Anchor.

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
