An Historic Day in the Catholic Church

Pope Francis
Pope Benedict XVI

St. John Paul II

To mark this special day in the history of the Catholic Church I'm posting some sketches from the past.
Saints John XXIII and John Paul II, pray for us.

The sketches are different media and completed in very different time frames - just like the men the portray.


  1. Hello, Barbara,
    I am here via Pinterest. Thanks for pinning!
    I am glad to discover your artwork. I like your drawings of the Popes that you did. They are expressive.
    I hope to visit back soon.
    All the best,
    Irene@The Happy Turtle

  2. Thank you! I look forward to your blog posts too!

  3. Dear Barbara - these are great sketches. Loved your previous posts as well.
    Like you I just want to enjoy the process of drawing without the pressure to have to do one each day.
    Hope you are having a wonderful spring. Take care and God Bless.

  4. Thanks, Debbie. Glad to meet you and your blog. I do enjoy the drawing and painting process!
