TGFM-Thank God for Monday!

Yes, I know it's Thursday. Monday, our sketch group went to Navy Pier in Chicago. The weather was cold so we opted to draw inside in at the Crystal Gardens. I've been so busy at work (I'm not complaining about that!) sketching just hasn't been on my agenda. This was a wonderful refreshing pause.

When I have had time to sketch I've been trying to loosen up so I avoided using my pencil as much as possible, though not entirely. I've also joined the Illinois Watercolor Society thanks to the encouragement of Carol Hennessy. I'm hoping it will inspire me to work more in watercolor and larger.

I'm grateful to all you bloggers and Flickr people for posting your work. I learn so much from you. Even though I haven't had much time to comment lately, I have been viewing and enjoying!


  1. Oops...thought I commented on this already. I have such a bad habit of not sticking around to see if my comment went through!

    Love the couple sitting on the bench! Glad you're happy to be busy! And enjoyed your "pause"!

  2. I just LOVE the way you lay things out on your pages. I wish I could do that. They look so stylish.
