Timeless Beauty

You never know when inspiration will strike... as I was visiting everyone else's blogs & checking out their art last week, I stopped at Faye's Adventures in Art.  Seeing her lovely lady reminded me I hadn't done any sketches of women in quite some time.  Here's some of my work leading up to this week...

~ Collage of a few high school sketches from about 10 years ago ~

~ Christmas card angel from 7 years ago ~

~ ... and here is my sketch from this week ~

I titled this post after her.  
She's acquired a few wrinkles over time, but is still beautiful.  
It looks like she's thinking about something amusing... 
or maybe she just knows something we don't know.

Thanks for visiting!
Happy PPF!

Also have to add...  
my brother is getting married Saturday!  
It's also his birthday ~ how cool is that?

Congratulations Evan & April!!

Love is... patient and kind; 
love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things ~ believes all things ~ hopes all things.
