I know it’s like second-nature for so many people, but I am 65 and never in my life thought I could sketch or make art, really. So, the “Art of Spring class” with Junelle Jacobsen is opening a new world for me. It’s not “fine” art but it is whimsical and fun, and though I am not excellent at the projects, it’s just amazing to me that I can do ANY of it. Here is some of the work from the last couple of days.
I did not originate “the idea” for these sketches—the class provided the inspiration.
From my sketch book (Me? a Sketch Book? this is crazy). These little bunnies were inspired by the work of another member in the class—hers were so adorable, I had to see if I could sketch some similar cuties.
Sketched the practice duckling into my “art journal” (a second copy of Purpose-Driven Life, made into an art journal).
Water colored the sketch.
Finished with pen work and splatters.
This is the beginning of an art journal layout—I will finish out the two pages and post the finished product, but this is where I am right now.
This class has come at a good time for me, as it is cheerful and bright and renewing. I need this right now! It is a blessing, really.
