Sunday Sketches

So another fine mess you've gotten me into Ollie!  LOL  My friend Marlene gets me into things....good things. First she got me into the Sketchbook Project and now Sunday Sketches. Marlene Hawkins inspires me to good things! Thank you Marlene otherwise known as LazyHawk around the Ebay, Etsy art world.

So look for me to feature a piece of art each week on Sunday! This week's feature is a piece I did for the ACEO Online Magazine competition. The theme was symbols of love. So I thought what to me is a symbol of love and it came to me. There was NO GREATER LOVE that the sacrifice Jesus made for us. That inspired me to do the pictured colored pencil ACEO, entitled, what else "No Greater Love.
