Let your sketches do the talking...
I had a little down time this afternoon, so I started a sketch of a toddling kiddo in the yard. She reminds me so much of my daughter at that age, in particular the hair "fountain". As I painted, she seemed to smile back at me. She waved and begged me to go outside to see the beautiful flowers in our yard. She even stopped to pick a few.
So, I let her take my hand and we stepped outside to oooh and ahhhh over the explosion of vibrant colors blooming all over the yard. Wow...and to think I might have missed it! It made me pause and reflect...I am thankful for a husband who's thumb is way greener than mine. And I am truly thankful for the gift that God gave me that allows me to create. I am even more in awe that HE connected with me through a sketch!
The following images represent the steps I took to complete the illustration "Kellie".
