Sunday Sketches - Just a Peek

A little peek inside Madeline's world this morning...for my friends over at Sunday Sketches.
Madeline is my mouse character that loves art, France and cheese!
Today is the first day of Spring and where else would a little mouse want to be but France?
Enjoy your Sunday, my friends.
I can't wait to see what you all have sketched this week.  It's been a fun week here in blog world!
So let's pop over to The Blue Chair Diary, and visit Sophia and friends!


PS - Did anyone else see that beautiful full moon last night? Amazing, wasn't it?

Ooh, I do so love Madeleine and her adventures. I'm sure she is being woo-ed by a French mouse right now. I think he's called Pierre and loves fine wine and garlic!

HA! This is great, Heather. I love the inside look we get into Madeline's world. You are so good at character development.

Proud of you and all the stretching and growing. You deserve to have it blasted out in the inter-webby world. I am really enjoying watching your star rising.

I DID get to ride yesterday - It was 80 degress and sunny, and I saw wild turkeys in the pine groves. A male had his tail in full flair, like a peacock. THAT made my day. We are still idol watchers but typically miss the elimination night...

I must say that sharing my name with a mouse isn't so terrible when you see what a delightful mouse she is. I can't wait to see more of her.

Teri C said...

Oh I love your little mouse and all the accessories!

I pulled this up at the gym this morning on my phone and couldn't wait to tell you how much I loved this glimpse into madeline's world! I'm telling you, Paris in the Springtime is IT!

Great page!

Smiles and hugs and I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday!

Miss the full moon--cloudy here! Love the world you have made for Madeline! It stretches our imagination when we create a world for our characters, whether drawn or written.

Jehanne said...

I love Madeline's world! Fantastic detail!
I swear I live on another plant at times - I completely missed the news about the moon, and only this am when I saw this massive thing(with a capital M) sinking over the hill did I remember you post about the moon (peeked at it last night :) ). hugs

Kristin Dudish said...

This is lovely! I especially love the mary jane's and miss kitty!
That's amazing that you saw the moon too! (in the US?) It was incredibly large and yellow and gorgeous all over the UK!

SaraLynn said...

Your style works so well for this type of illustration. There is so much to look at and it is so charming. I could really see something like this being published in a children's book.

Reflections said...

What a fun, fabulous peek into Madeline's world, hoping France will be as exciting as in her dreams.

Congratulations on the 100 Illustrations project! how exciting!
