Sunday Sketch and then some

I am happy to know that there is a spot in this blogworld for Sunday Sketches:)
I discovered this while checking in on a wonderful blog by Tracy !
This is something I can manage, LOL...let's hope. I struggled with the last challenge
 (ummm, that's why they call it a challenge, Frannie...)

My Sunday Sketch
  I also have a few others that I did this weekend during my travels to the house up north as well as out east to the parents.
 BUT before I do that I have to share my mom's sketches as well. She is such a good artist and probably the main reason why I am an artist. 

These were tacked on her bulletin board...Isn't she great?:

Recipe cards she drew the fruit with her markers

Sorry Mom, this one came out blurry:)
 Mom is so creative and has set up a wonderful working area in a spare room (my old bedroom!) in the house. She paints, sketches, does origami, name it.  She can whip anything up!

I used my favorite makers - microns- for this doodle...
Its a wonderful Buddha quote! Everyone does deserve it!

silly face

Another Pennsylvania Dutch folk art inspired sketch
Now I have to get back to an important questionnaire that I have been struggling with then to bed!
Have a great week this week and be good to yourself.
