Love One Another


Sunday Sketches with a theme.
I love to draw and sketch with pen and watercolor. But I spend a lot of time working with clay, which I also love. I sketch out ideas for projects and ideas in my sketchbooks. Lately I have been making the effort to work on some sketches and finish them with watercolors. I have been inspired by another artist/blogger, Alexandra H. MacVean, to start posting 'Sunday Sketches'. She has a link up post every Sunday with a cute graphic to link up with. I will be posting my watercolor sketches here on Sundays.

So here are a couple of my recent watercolor sketches...

My theme today is...

Love One Another


I'm choosing these two watercolor sketches because I would like to see more tolerance and love in the world.
I was taught to Love thy neighbor.  This past week, there has been a lot of hate and negativity in the world. My hope is that people will learn from these events to Love one another.

Love thy neighbor

No two people are exactly the same. We are all very different.  We can't pick and choose what differences should be acceptable or not. I wouldn't want people to choose not to accept me because I'm left handed, or because I'm an introvert, or an artist. I would hope that I am accepted by everyone for what I am. I can't change who I am. God loves me just the way he made me.

Your neighbor does not have to be your best friend, or someone that you spend time with, But you should love them for who they are. God made them too. We all matter in this world.

Love one another

This world would be a better place if everyone would just love each other.
Love is caring about each other.
Helping each other.
Not tearing other people down.
Accepting that people have differences.
Respecting our differences.
Respecting others opinions.


We need more 
tolerance
in this world. 

We need...
Peace

Help spread some tolerance and love around this week. What can you do to help your neighbor? A friend? A family member? A stranger?

Have a great week!

What I'm Working on Wednesday

It is already June?

This month I am playing catch up. Last month was spent taking care of family, so I didn't get much time to post here. Again. Family first though, you know?

I am signed up to be in two large art shows this fall. One in October, and one in November. I was a vendor at War Eagle Fair, in October last year, but this will be my first time at the show in November. The November show is a big local Boutique show.

This summer will be filled with creating lots of items to sell at each show!

Between the two shows and keeping my Etsy shop stocked, I am/will be very busy for the next several months.


Happy Wednesday!



What are you working on?
