Journal Sketchbook Entry


I'm still completing one sketch per day (usually pen with watercolor wash) in 2006.  This week the sketches all were inspired by my two oldest grandchildren (ages 2 1/2 and 16 months) as they prepared to move to London for at least one year.  Last night I did this sketch as they were boarding their overnight flight, and at 5AM I got up to check for their email that they "landed and were leaving the airport" to go to their new home. 

October in London is a month-long celebration of drawing at multiple venues and I will definitely be there to enjoy it!  




BEAUTIFULLY done, Shirley!!!! Love the ink and WC!!!! great lines and wonderful sentiment!

Shirley, this is gorgeous! I feel like I can pick up Paddington Bear and give him a cuddle! What an exciting time for your Grandchildren and their parents. It will be an adventure to make new friends and explore - with Mum and Dad, of course! And for you too. Seeing them in new surroundings and then discovering new art supplies and new things to draw and paint. Please be sure to tell us about art meccas you find while you're there!

Paddington is perfect. Thanks for the wonderful memory. :-D
