Trees (Sunday Sketches)

I've been wanting to draw trees lately.  I finally finished one I started a couple months ago. Then I worked on a simple one (with the swing) with my 8 year old drawing beside me. I love how his turned out but he doesn't want me to share it.

I started a faerie picture for faerie day but I can't seem to get back to it. I don't know if trees are inspiring me because of what is going on in our lives with my father in law being so ill but for some reason, trees seem to fit the bill of what I need to be drawing.

We celebrated my father in law's 70th birthday this past weekend and it was a lovely day. He was so alert. He ate, joined in conversation and laughed a lot. I'm so glad he was able to have a birthday like that. There are days when he is feeling so unwell and despondant that we wonder if he will be with us at the end of the summer.

Anyway, maybe the trees signify life to, strength and being alive...
