Matthew 14:16-21

But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.  And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.  He said, Bring them hither to me.  And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.  And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

DH and our oldest two sons just got back from their train trip with the church youth group.  They have been regaling me and our younger two children with stories of their adventure, making this drawing another late night/ early morning one.  So, here is a speedy sketch ala The Chinese Brush Painting Bible.

I know it is 3 am on the 14th, but since I haven’t been to bed yet I am counting this as Saturday the 13th’s drawing.  I was feeling much better so I took the two youngest out shopping.  We came back home with goodies to make journal/sketchbooks.  Of course, we had to start making them.  It was 2 am before I knew it and I didn’t have a drawing made!  I cranked out this little puppy and I actually like it. Wow, it seems like it’s been a while since I really was pleased with a drawing.

Today is another simple sketch, something idiot proof after my latest fiascoes.  I’m drinking lots of tea and trying to take it easy.  Hopefully, I’ll beat this bug soon.

This one is posted late,after 1 am,because I kept trying to get a good scan of the gold writing.  The foil is much shinier IRL, but it just won’t show up in a scan.  I just  wanted to do a quick scribble and go to bed since I’m still sick,but nooooo I get a cranky scanner and invisible gold letters.  UGHHHH!!!!!

ETA– When I looked at Thursday’s sketch this morning I realized I had misspelled a word. That was the last straw, I hated the lettering part and it had to go.  Of course; being tired,sick and totally clumsy this morning I decided to burn a frame for the sketch to hide the nasty, misspelling.  Well,the hotmark tool was too slow and managed to burn one finger and melt my polish on another.  So, I’m off to try a candle flame.  I managed to set my paper on fire and completely burn up my frame and new lettering not once but three times!!  This is as good as it gets— the verse is now spelled properly and my house is singed but still standing.  I need chocolate, NOW!!!!!
