A painting for Glynnis

Glynnis had the picture and I’ve put the paint on canvas!

I met Glynnis as the superintendent of our Sundayschool. She has done this for years and is now taking a well-deserved break. We all remember the concerts she organized with our kids as the actors. Thank you, Glynnis!!

…I don’t think she would want me to write about her… : ) And not that I’m good with words anyway…

So I won’t tell you what a lovely lady she is. No, I won’t. I could tell you that she has been studying for the last how many years. And that was not as a full-time student! No, she studied while working and caring for her sons and everything woman with houses are supposed to do! Soon she will finish her masters degree. I should not tell you what a beautiful person she is, she won’t like that… But she is, on the outside and on the inside.

Glynnis, I pray for you to be the girl on the swing. Secure and filled with joy!

Keeping up with a sketch a week…

To make a commitment to create a sketch every week has a positive side and a negative side.
It does get you to draw more, but then just once  : )  you fall behind and that’s where the negative part comes in.. You then do something quickly just to do… and end up with little sketches like the next two. I almost didn’t post them, but now they sit in my journal, so why not? They have their place there in these weeks of September, so who am I to tell them they’re not good enough for the blog…
