Latest Drawing Unveiled

Karissa & Kory 8" x 10" Graphite


I was thrilled to be commissioned to draw these kids by a friend of mine. This is a boy from my son's soccer team and his sister. The photo I took doesn't do the drawing much justice, but here it is anyway. Mum is the word for any of you who know these guys...their mom doesn't know that it's her Christmas gift.

And now I can focus on shopping and wrapping. Then on to more drawing. I love this.

Hey, this is nice.
One suggestion.
Put a caption under each of the graphics just so folks know that they went to the right place when they click on your art links.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

BR, not sure how to place a caption under the graphics...can you help me?

:)

Cele said...

Wow, awesome picture Lisa. Mom will be speechless, I'm sure. I would be.

Jazzy said...

Lisa,

This is really good. I have been feeling so guilty lately because I have not drawn for a while. I have just been too darn busy.

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

I am sure she will be thrilled and it will be her special-est gift. It must give you a sense of pride to have another one done.

totally awesome!!! I am trying to draw a portrait of my good for nothing husband as a baby to give to his parents, but I'm just too busy lately, you know with desecrating cemeteries and all that.

Beautiful work! I can't wait to see more -- especially if it is of someone really, um, cool. ;)


Do you have good computer graphics software?

SML- with each new drawing of yours that I see, I think "Wow, she has really outdone herself!" and this is no exception. You are amazing!

Sister Mary Lisa said...

Pokerspice, Cele, Jazzy, and Maryam, Thanks!!!

BR, thanks for the compliment and suggestion. I think it worked!

Montchan, I'm looking forward to seeing a photo of your work! I'm sincerely happy when I find out others draw or like to draw. Another thing we have in common!

Gluby, she really is, um, cool!

Chanson, FFG, Sideon, MP, Christy, thanks for the warm compliments. You guys all know how to make me feel so great.

Janet, you're next, I believe. I'll contact you when I get really into picking and choosing which photos work best! I'm excited!

You've got a great eye for light and texture--very nice! I may be motivated again. :)

Sideon took my comment, but it's worth repeating... fan-fucking-tastic! Seriously, I don't know these people at all, nor is it a gift to me, but it left *me* speechless. I hope the recipient has an appreciation for how good this is.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

EHL~ Do It, Do It, Do It! That's your artsy fan club chanting at you from over here.

Mattman, thanks so much. I really love hearing compliments.

Hey SML, late to the party to tell you that's a beautiful drawing. All of your artwork that you've displayed on this blog is incredible.

Taiko Tari said...

SML, your drawings are absolutely PHENOMENAL. I am in awe.
Supposing that I want to order some pics to have made from you, what is the procedure? And what would be the price?
I'm truly not blessed with any drawing skill, you give me a pencil and you will see some writing, and that's pretty much it.
