No New Stuff

Sorry to be missing in action lately. No real reason except it is that time of year when my emotions get a little raw. The time of year when I miss my husband more. From out anniversary, the holidays, his birthday in Feb, and finally the day he passed away the end of March. Any time I am watching tv and something makes me sad, I get really emotional and start really crying. I guess it is good to get it out of my system. I have been working on my New And Gently Used sketchbook Journal. I have pieces of several pages done. Will try to post a couple of those this week. Just don't give up on me completely. I'm just slow, not done.

Bill & Kylie

The likeness isn't perfect but close enough that it stirs the memories.

Sketchbook: Till Death Do Us Part

I started my "Bill" sketchbook. I did a drawing of him on the inside cover. I used Copic markers and a little Verithin colored pencil red on the face. The page across from this one shows the sketchbook's name and the date of our marriage. I have another page started a couple pages in. I have traced the outline of a photo of ill holding our great niece Kylie. She was only a few months old when he passed away He had looked forward to being an extra "grandpa" for her. Her dad has always been like a son to us. the photo I used was taken at our Christmas evening with them 3 months before his death.
