I know this is a parenting blog and all, but maybe Sunday Sketch will be my new Sunday thing. Today was not the best day, but in the late afternoon I did take a walk alone in Frick Park.
I turned on a different path, which took me up a steep ravine and then suddenly dead-ended at Forbes Avenue, which traverses the park on a very high overpass. I was disappointed to discover that I’d have to walk the width of the park on Forbes to get back inside. But it turned out to be kind of beautiful walking along so high up, looking down on the trees. I stopped midway to do a quick sketch of the horizon, my sketchbook and pastels balanced precariously on the side rail. My second sketch is of some of my favorite houses along the bowling green.
Tomorrow back to regularly-scheduled baby announcements.

These are beautiful! No need to be apologetic for changing it up a bit, especially when this is the outcome!
Thanks Marissa. You’re the best.
Moms need some if their own hobbies as well. I really like your sketches!!
Thank you Sasha! I know, hobbies are important.
They’re so great! Make me wish I had managed a sketch on my rambles today…
Wish I could do it every day…
Good for you. We all need a ‘me’ day when raising little ones. I hope your day will be better tomorrow.
Thank you! I think today will be better.
Gorgeous sketches. Are they with ordinary pastels? The colours are so vibrant and the area looking very welcoming. :O)
They’re with oil pastels. I got my hands completely covered and then had to continue my walk with very messy hands. Oh well.
Of course.. we used oil pastels a lot at school. I always made a huge mess with them. Worth it though! :o)
I love the mom stuff because of how real and relatable your topics are. That said, I’m excited to see your Sunday sketches! This looks right out of a book! Really cool.
Thank you Alisa! It will still mostly be about parenting. And maybe I’ll do baby sketches, too 🙂
Either way, I’m a fan 🙂
Moms really need a creative outlet. Thank you for sharing yours with us! They’re beautiful!
Love those drawings
Thanks Jenny 🙂
Beautiful sketches! Thank you for sharing. Best, Cate
Thank you Cate!
This is some seriously amazing artwork.
Thank you so much!
Love the sketches, especially the top one.
It’s your blog, post what you like. But I love reading about life itself more than one specific topic (although that is good too).
In any case we have to keep ourselves interested, too!
