New Sketches, New Work and Art Resource of the Week

A Happy Father's Day Weekend! 
This time of year is always hard for me, as I lost my dad 3 years ago to lung cancer.
I like to wish all the dad's out there many blessings, love and a joyous weekend.
And had to share this quote - "The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!"
God Bless all of our Dads!
Well, I have some new sketches to share with everyone from last weekend's Sketchfest

This first sketch was inspired by the prompt "What I Saw In the Clouds" I am currently working on this piece and should have it completed within the next few days. It will be up for sale at the sketchfest site, when completed.
I have to admit, I was really inspired to do this prompt due to a book I had just read "Taliesin" by Stephen Lawhead 

and I was really inspired by natural signs from the heavens we see in the clouds.

The second sketch prompt was "Shall I Keep It?" I am nearly done with this sketch and it will be up for sale at the sketchfest.

The last sketch was inspired by prompt "Modern Little Red Riding Hood"
I titled this one "Red" I am nearly done with this sketch and will have it up for sale at the sketchfest and will be doing a color version of this piece as well.
