Paint Party Friday – did I ever have fun!

I was at a client's house last April, and began sketching whilst sitting with her. She was in a coma and died that month. We know that they can hear us, and I try to be relaxed. It is relaxing, drawing, and I was inspired back then by my blog buddy, Christine.

New drawing, I popped an old drawing into the
picture frame! 
At my latest client's house, I decided that their figure was a fun item to draw (see below).

Then, I couldn't figure out what to put in the picture frame when I decided to try to pop in a previous drawing! Next, I got crazy with Graphic Converter! My scanner doesn't pick up all of the colours. I know that the professional artists use an expensive Mac drawing program, but Graphic Converter has been useful while I was teaching.
From January!

Here is the inspiration, a lovely figurine. My client and I do a bit of a Life Review, just a couple of questions each visit so as not to tire his diminishing voice, as I sit with him for several hours.

Then we went back to watching Women's World curling and I began to sketch. He is such a lovely man. He was very complimentary about my drawing, even though his dear wife, in her time, used to do fabulous folk art on chairs, and was very good! My late Mom would have said he is "such a pet!" Both a delightful couple!

Hi Jenn,

Your work is lovely and from the heart.
I have always been enamoured by old folks for they are a treasure chest filled with many wonderful presents that still are waiting to be gifted.
