* Sketches ...

I never sketch really. I simply draw straight on to the canvas. Next week, however, I will be at a different house for the week painting, so I thought a sketch would come in handy. I have no idea what size of canvas I will be painting on.

 I did sketch my Casablanca slippers on to a small canvas thinking they might be fun to experiment

I was looking at some of my old Casablanca photographs which caused ideas to whir in my head.  I adore exotic looking women.

 That's all for today.  Hope you are enjoying a creative week.  Take care.  Thanks for stopping by my Lovely's.  Sangria should be back up and running by next week.  :o)

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
- Steve Jobs



  1. The sketches are beautiful, and I hope you will have fun week painting. When I was a kid I used to imagine that people had to curl up their toes to wear those sort of slippers! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Hey Donna - your sketch looks like fun and I look forward to your painting! Your slippers are amazing - I love them in real life and I love your sketch! I don't know what you mean about the week painting but I am sure I will find out. It sounds like you are feeling much better.
