By coincidence, I recently completed a commission for a wonderful client (thank you, Sharonel!)..and it so happened that this piece had a circus theme as well! Here is the watercolor before I had added some handlettering digitally to the final piece. I hope the piece was well-received and worked well for her festive occasion!
~I recently had a great quick visit to Washington D.C....I rented a car, had one full day to my own and discovered many new places on my visit: the Newseum, the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art (ok, I swooned when I saw Italian Master Drawings!), and visited Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, walked from the Capitol Bldg, visited the WWII Memorial, Vietnam, and Korean Memorials, and enjoyed a thunderstorm at the Lincoln Memorial. It was a really wonderful day. I'm so very proud of my eldest who completed a week-long Jr. National Young Leadership Conference all week and I was SO very happy to have her back in my arms again! Here's a quick sketch at the WWII memorial..
~I was hoping to get to the lastest Illustration Friday prompt (Midsummer Night), but alas, it's already Friday, and a new word has come..I may still consider painting my sketch and show here on the blog when I have it ready. Hope everyone is healthy and well and I want to thank all of you for your very kind visits..it's always so encouraging to read each comment and visit all of you. Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead...any grand escapes or holidays you'll be taking? I like to live vicariously you know. : )
