I am working on the sketchbook project for 2018. It is a small little sketchbook that will be in The Brooklyn Art Library.
The theme I picked is “no worries”. I believe no matter where you live in the world we all have worries but if we put our faith in Jesus Christ we are saved by grace. We can give our worries to him and have joy and peace inside no matter what troubles are in the world.
I am painting global women from all around the world who are determined to live a life filled with joy and peace in their hearts or you could call it no worries.
These are not perfect women, they are just ordinary women living with their faith in God who has granted them the grace of salvation.
Hope you will enjoy seeing these women. Meet Bethany.
I love these three fashion illustrations I just did for my “Face Collection”.
Hot Pink Lips
Little Black Dress

I have had such inspiration today. I really needed it. It has been a long week. I am normally a very optimistic and happy person all the time but the last two days I have been down and a little depressed. Well I found two ladies who have just brightened up my day and got my thinking juices flowing.
First of all let me introduce you to Carol Carlisle. She has one funny blog named Light Words. You have to take a look at her blog. I loved her post “What dance are you doing the day after Christmas?” it put a smile on my face.
Then there is Carolee, her blog is named “My silly Snail Blog.” Anyone who can write about snails for a whole year, 365 days to be exact and make it funny can’t be all bad. LOL
Ok, my mind works in mysterious ways so here goes ,this is how I got inspired and what I came up with . I was reading Carol’s post and let her know how much I liked it and told her my name just so happens to be Carol also. She in turn wrote me back and told me about Carolee and said we could have our own team of great bloggers.
I then decided to check out Carolee’s blog where I saw she has been doing a blog for a whole year on of all things snails. Snails is one of one of the last things I would choose to do a blog on, but Carolee has some wonderful things at her site: My Silly Snail Blog
This in turn made me realize if she can do a blog on snails for a year, plus it turn out great, what can I do. Thus, the answer was born, through these two wonderful ladies.
Starting January 2013 I am going to do something once a week on the word, get ready, can you guess what it is:
Come on I give you three guesses;
you say, “You need a hint”
ok here is one.
What does my blog have in common with these other two blogs?
Did you figure it out?
No, it is not that we are all women..ok you need a second hint… humm should I give you another hint or make you wait till next year….ok you win, here is another hint
we three women all have something the same
figured it out yet
yes we all have the name Carol in common. That is it!! Had you thinking there..
So for the next year once a week at least I will have a post about the work “Carol”
Looking forward to see how well I can pull this off and who knows what I may learn upon the way.. See you next year and happy blogging!! 🙂
