Sunday Sketches - Every Now and Then & Clue #1


It's Sunday and it's time for Sunday Sketches with Sophia and the gang, over here at
The Blue Chair Diary. Grab a pencil and your sketchbook, and come draw with us!

Well, I am not in Paris with Madeline,
but I am enjoying the view from here where I stand...
hmmm, I wonder, is there a Starbucks around here???
Well, as you can see,
I will be traveling for the next week -
 I am not sure how often I will get to visit you my friends, but I will try!
 I will miss ALL of  you and your daily posts, thoughts, paintings, poems and drawings -
Enjoy your week!
XO
PS - Throughout the week I will try to give clues as to my locale...
and if you want to try and guess the exact locale,
the winner will receive a
a special prize!
The first clue...
(trumpets)
When we got off the plane, here,  it was 80 degrees
...but, it's snowing now...

I love that Madeline is taking a vacation, she appears to be enjoying herself. Fun idea for a contest. I can't think of anywhere that it can be 80 one day, snowing the next, and trumpets. I will have to put my thinking cap on.

This illo is adorable and I love see the text along with. It shows how well your images would look in a picture book.

Have fun, skiing???

hmmm... well it does that in Colorado, but trumpets? Thanks for visiting my blog. I have an art club at the school I work at. The oil pastels were done on good old construction paper which is what we usually work on. Have a great trip.

It's so cute! I adore the mushroom. Wonderful work!

EVA said...

Madeline looks very relaxed. Is she daydreaming or on vacation?

My guess is you flew into Las Vegas and are driving up to go skiing or to the Grand Canyon.

Where ever you are - have a great time, Heather!!

sweet drawing! I'm terrible at guessing, especially locations but I'll say, Canada, it's the only place that I know has similar weather to new york.

have a great sunday!
