SUNDAY SKETCHES and POST CARDS from PARADISE



ASIAN BRUSH PAINTING from MY SKETCHBOOK


Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of the artist's soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the inner spirit.


Come join us today in exploring sketches from various artists at Sophie's BlueChairDiary Illustrations and photography at Rebecca's Post Cards from Paradise. 
   
SUNDAY SKETCHES



The above sketch is another one of my Asian brush paintings and was done in my sketchbook. It is a type of duck called a 'rosybill.' I found a photo in one of the wild life publications that I receive and had no copyright. The color red, of course, caught my eye and it is for Sunday Sketches.


 
POST CARDS from PARADISE




The photo below is for Post Cards from Paradise and was taken recently at a local beach. It is one of our many places to go for our 'daily walks and commune with nature.' We are grateful to live in such a wonderful 'paradise'.




We hope you have enjoyed our sketch and our photo and will visit the other wonderful artists and photographers and feed your soul with the wonderful creations.


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.



Hugs and namaste,
