Last Week's Sketches

Mourning a Great Man - for His Friendship

Image from www.CBC.CA

As Canada mourns the death of a great man, Jim Flahrety, two tributes stand out for me.  These tributes describe Jim Flahrety as a great friend, even as he is being lauded for his great service to Canada in his recent and long tenure as Finance Minister.  I hope that these tributes will touch your heart as they have mine:  Rex Murphy on the National, and Father Raymond J. de Souza in the National Post.

Draw Your Awesome Year

Each month in her on-line course, Draw Your Awesome Year, Joanne Sharpe helps us to design a page for recording our daily highlights. Due to a sudden splurge of volunteer commitments, this is all I find time to do in my journal most days.  It is a good thing that this forces me to crack the journal otherwise my creative life would be restricted to problem solving committee activities!

I'm enjoying doing the Weaver Writing.  It is pretty easy to do, which is a good thing given my impatience.  I might just have to face the fact that I like quick, easy and simple.  

I realize as I look at this that I forgot to credit the author of these lyrics - Gloria Sklerov.  The angel stamp is by Magenta.

Doodles 3 and 4

I've been so busy lately that I've had no time to blog and little time to create.  That's life!

Who Is She?

I'm not sure where this one is going.  The background is acrylic; I did the drawing with a Stabilo pencil and added some gelato to lighten the skin.
