Sunday Sketches - My Inspiration(s)

A lot of people ask me about where my inspiration comes from -
Honestly, it can change from day to day - a mood, a picture, a thought, something I might see in town, people, places, or a song or a book -
BUT, my biggest inspiration comes from my two children, Summer and Saylor....
Two loveable characters, indeed!



Summer is sporty, funny, beautiful, moody, silly and oh so very smart....

 Saylor is red-headed freckly adorable budding artist...she's a fashionista and a stuffed animal lover...and she never leaves home without her purse and some purple! oh yeah!

So, today I am sharing that with you all - You may recognize some of traits of these wonderful girls inside a lot of my characters, they truly are my biggest inspiration!

I am so proud to share them with you!
Stay tuned for more....Adventures with Summer and Saylor!

Now, I am off to visit with my friends over at Sunday Sketches - See you there! Grab a pencil and come join in, here

I had noticed that your sketches were inspired from your daughters, as you shared their pictures with us a few times :-)
And it made me feel I NEED TO do the same with my growing toddler ! :-)
I LOVE your drawings and would really like to draw my Daughter's everyday expressions and actions :-)
But I need to learn how to draw first... hmmm..
So would you PLEASE advise me on where to start? Which book to read? which tools to use?
Thanking you in advance !
All the BEST to you and your Family !
