She Protected Them

The She Project rolled into action Friday night. This happened to be perfect, since I’d spent the day outside working in the yard, enjoying all the sunshine and colors. Dave didn’t get home until around 8:30 and by that time it was finished. This year my phrase was “She Protected Them”. This is what I came up with…

I surprised myself by pulling out colored paper and soft pastels to create the image. Colors didn’t matter much so I used a bunch. This was the first time I’ve worked on colored paper. My friend Debby Sundbaum-Sommers had given me the sketch pad as a thank you gift for helping out at her open studio a few years back. She often uses colored paper with her drawings.

If you’re wondering what The She Project might be, please click on the name to find out more. A huge thanks to Lauren Ohlgren for doing yet another year! We are so lucky to have her in our community!!!
