Cover Art

Sunday, July 21, 2013


Lots of self reflection going on this summer. Unfortunately not much time to do it.  I think I've realized that I want to feel more "joy". I'm trying to consciously stay in the moment and look for joy within me and around me.

Anyway, today it came out as this drawing. It's totally not my comfort style but I find when I'm looking at other blogs, I'm drawn to the colours and whimsy. I can't do that with the portrait style that I usually draw. So maybe it's time for something new. These pencil crayons aren't of the highest quality and I find they don't blend well. I only have a nice set of skin-tone colours so I had to raid my kids left over school art supplies for the colours I wanted. The pink I wanted for the word Joy wasn't what I found but there is a limey-green in here that I am loving.

Happy Sunday Sketches!


  1. Yes!!! We could all use more joy in our lives! Declaring your desire with this lovely sketch is definitely a step in the right direction!

  2. joy in art is a sweet reminder
    your piece is sweet too

    i enjoy trying new styles of art
    but sometimes i think i should stay with one and i might get further in expressing myself... not sure
    wishing you fun with colors and whimsy

  3. Kim, I really like your JOY artwork. It speaks volumes and touches hearts more than you realize. :) I hope you find what you're looking for. HUGS and WELCOME! :) xx

  4. Joy can be found in the simple things and just the message with the colors you used bring a warmth and joy to the heart. Nicely done.

  5. Art can naturally bring joy into any life! This is very sweet. Thank you for sharing and happy SS!
