sketch-iness









Meet the girls...I call them "Uneven Sisters...









This is my latest muse...sketching...














I've always wanted to sketch...














Give my Dad a pencil and he could sketch anything...











It was so cool...











I've been taking my sketchbook and graphite pencils
everywhere...










and I sketch whenever I can...








So that's what I've been up to lately...
hanging out with the girls...

Wow, all of those are great Angela! Your artistic talents have no limit. At your Cafe Press link, I particularly like the lines of Lizzi and the texture of Pheebi. Superb!

Is there ANYTHING you can't do?

These sketches are so edgy and cool, and I love the 'motion' and 'emotion' in them.

Right On Angela!

Oh, I love your new sketches! They each have a personality of their own! The blue and pink ones are my favorites, which is funny because they are so NOT my colors! I love fall colors but those two girls rock!

These are happy sketches!! They are very stylistic and it looks like you've been doing them all of your life.

You're just taking up sketching?! You are definitely very talented! They are just terrific! I love the expressions and the lines you created. Love their names, too.

I thought the bottom girl would be called "Angela" since she has the scarf around her neck and it looks like a glass of wine in her hands!

I vote for Pheebi :>. Very interesting drawings that I think have a 1950's fashion influence.

My favorite Angela items include the boy in blue, girl in gold photo / art pieces from an earlier Said & Done. I enjoy the rich colors and textures the most.

I LOVE your girls, Angela! You inspire me to loosen up and have fun with my pencils and paper. What did you use for color? They're lovely! Hugs, Shari

Oh Angela, I do love these so. Just my style... so fashionable and chic! I too have started sketching again... perhaps it's something in the air.

I love the sweet little doggie photos below. What a doll.

Oh wow Angela! What fantastic movement and the coloring is just so lovely! They are wonderful - that latest muse rocks! Now I just need to decide. I need Eliza on something. . .maybe the coffee cup. Hmmm. . .

Hi Angela,

I forgot to mention the first time around how much I love how you use photographic images for their apparel. That's a very cool technique!

I think you have your dad's talent! They're awesome.
