Sketch Play: Birds and Fairy

LR Sketch Play: Birds and Fairy

Sharing another recent sketch,  I never know what my next subject will be.  I love the freedom of just wandering and pausing and capturing an image before moving on. 

Definitely not masterpieces! However, these small sketches represent that freedom. And they contrast and give balance to the hecticness of my work life and some challenges in my personal life.   I mentioned in a past post that my husband survived cancer four times.  In between, there have been other health issues.    Friday, he’ll be having surgery to repair his lungs.   My husband is a fighter, a survivor, a positive force, a hard-worker.  I’m still learning how to battle fear.
