Daffodils in the new home



Yesterday I took a break from unpacking and sketched the first daffodils blooming at the new house. I only spent about ten minutes on it, but really enjoyed doing it! I have to get back to pursuing my goal of sketching every day this year. This past week I've not done so well...

I'm part of an online art group called Everyday Matters, and there is a weekly challenge of something to draw. They are currently at week #157 or so, and I just recently joined. Therefore, I am going to be doing some of the older challenges mixed in with other things! Here is #1- a shoe. The daffodils fit #76 (flowers) and #124 (something yellow).

Leslie, I don't think that I have ever left a comment on your blog before, but I surely won't miss seeing the blog anymore! Your work is lovely, delicate, nicely detailed.

You have had quite an exciting year already! I have enjoyed the pictures of your new home. The "schoolroom" looks super. That large window and all the bookcases - WOW!

May you be blessed in your new home, and all good things come your way.

Both these drawings are great! I especially like the clean, simple lines on the daffodils.
