Sunday Sketches...

POST UPDATE:
Many of you have asked...
YES!
These have licensed and will be in stores!
As always, sweet friends~ thank you for your
sweet comments, support and for respecting
my original designs...
They are copyright protect... and published.
I will post about the cool products soon!!!
I have a sketch book for this...
A Moleskine journal for that...


This is a special diary that helps to keep me focused.
I want to hear the message~
I wish I could sit nice and make eye contact~
There is so much to see!

The gorgeous sage scarf with the pale mustard polka dots...
Three rows up~
The light patterns on the walls that begin
to look like design elements... or is that an elephant?
The sweet, rosy cheeked, baby that adores his momma
and cannot stop looking at her loving eyes!

I am visual.


When I draw...
I hear the message and learn~
because I'm not distracted.



I'm sure the top of my head is not all that fun
to look at. I try look up. I am interested in
everything the speaker has to share!
I will hear and retain more... if I draw.
I doodled in my notebooks all through
high school and college...
The teachers were not amused...
I tried to break myself of it...
I hear more this way.

So thankful our children
are able to focus better than their mum!


Thought it would be fun to share my Sunday Sketches...
Each Sunday I'll post a new scripture~

Hope you have a fantastic week!

I love the sketches Michelle, they are so full of grace and love and it shines through each one. Do you color them later on? Either way they are precious!

I love your Sunday sketches and I can totally relate about hearing better when you draw. I don't draw - but I doodle as I take notes. They don't look at all like yours but i does helpme focus!

Beautiful Michelle! Boy, would I love to see this collection published...some of my favorite verses here and with your artwork..so very meaningful. Thank you for letting us see them. (I write the Phillipians verse on every card I give my husband..I really do thank God for him!)
Love my birds and hearts. Thank you so much!

I so agree with you, I too am a doodler/sketcher and draw around my handover sheet at work, I am sure people think I am not listening ....but I am! Like you it helps something to sink in if I draw it but most people don't understand that! I haven't tried it at Church yet...but it's tempting!

These are beautiful, Michelle! Wow! The Scriptures would certainly get into your head and heart while you are working on them. Maybe the pastor needs to see the fruits of your labors someday. :o)

vicki said...

Michelle- these are so very beautiful- they are so deeply humbling--
I am sure that you see the possibility of a beautiful creation, sketch, or painting in all that you experience. You would need to be a visual and soulful person to create as you do. You were born to this my friend-

Thank you for always sharing your artistry-
Vicki

Hi Michelle, I love your sketches! And the bible verses with them; so lovely! I used to doodle on my homework also, and also the teachers were not too amused! How sad that they couldn't see!

Sharyn Sowell said...

I'm doing scripture based art, too Michelle! How fun to see yours. Wouldn't it be fun sometime to do a blog hop from one scripture based image to another, artist to artist? I'd love that. Just a matter of squeezing everything in between the deadlines, isn't it?

I hear better when I draw, too. Maybe I should get a new Moleskine for this purpose like you do instead of scattering my scripture sketches all over at random!
