  1. Great stuff here! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you Lynn! I’ve just finished gathering some more master artists that I want to try drawing/sketching. Your enthusiasm has been the wind in my sails at times. I am learning a lot about artists but more importantly I’m learning to move my hands!

    • you are such an inspiration to us with this project Laura! thank you. I am always fascinated by the art and artists you choose and how beautifully you interpret them. One of my favorite things about this series is your use of color. I also love the way you share information about each artist at the bottom of your drawing. I look forward to more!
