Ohmygosh. Do you know how many photos I have taken on Balboa Island meaning to paint some and never have? These are wonderful. I love that Island of homes & businesses. Cant wait to see this one finished.

Your boys are adorable! :-) And I love these sketches. They make me want to pull out my crayons and markers and start coloring them in. :-)

Hi Fifi, here's a thought, why don't you do a coloring book for adults? I'd love to fill in the color for your sketches! Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Hi Fifi, it has been way too long since I have visited and I love your art and posts. Busy summer as always.
Love your sketches and you will find time after a busy summer to finish them. Your darling boys are more important. How cute they are. Have some summer fun and enjoy a break.

Hugs, Jeanne
