In our sketchbooks . . .

If you read our last post, you know that we've been spending a lot of time at the hospital. Between visits to Grandpapa, we've managed to make some art. 

This is a picture inspired by sketches of trees that I saw on furniture at the Art Nouveau Museum here in Berlin.

And another phoenix. The phoenix is an ancient symbol of Christ's resurrection that I have been exploring during Lent. 

This is the Michaelis Kloster (St. Michael's Monastery) in Hildesheim, Germany that I recently visited.

My 10-year-old made a linocut of some Marvel superheroes. Guess who?

And my 8-year-old loves cupcakes and horses.

We're joining Friday Sketches at Dion Dior's beautiful blog

  1. Sheila, your blog posts are so meaningful for me this week. This is my first Easter without my dh but I believe he is at an eternal Easter place. I love your beautiful trees in the painting and your children's art. I hope your f.i.l. is recuperating nicely and you will all enjoy the Easter Sunday ahead.

  2. Thank you, Faye! I will be thinking of you during Eastertide - you are a wonderful inspiration with how you are embracing this new season of life.
