75 Day Sketch Challenge: Day 57

Every spring I plant the front row of my garden with zinnias. All summer long, they flourish without any care, producing masses of bright blooms that cheer me up every time I pass that way. I love to pick big bunches of them to bring in the house. Arranged in an old blue and white pitcher, they brighten my kitchen and my mood - there's just something so lively and happy about them.

  1. This might just be my favorite yet - I LOVE it!! And your Lexington Gray seems lighter than mine - wonder why that is.

  2. Thanks, Cheryl, I like it, too. Makes me happy. The lex gray probably just looks lighter due to computer variations, don't you think? I wish you could see my sketchbook in person sometime - the colors are so much prettier than on the computer.
