Sugarland is Sweet...and so are you!

I just happened to spend some time sitting in the gorgeous autumn sunshine today, and just happened to find a sketchbook next to me, with some coloured pencils, and just happened to find a print in the sketchbook of a photo of my sister Gillian, so naturally picked up the pencils and tried to sketch it... Then later this afternoon, she called on Skype, and we chatted about this and that, and I said I was trying to think of a blog to do with Sugar is Sweet...etc (following on from my two previous posts, Roses are Red, Irises are Blue - which she hadn't cottoned onto - is it that obscure?) and she suggested Sugarland (where she lives) is sweet and so was she, being the cheeky sort and not shy in coming forward. So it all seemed meant to be, and she is quite sweet, really, and pretty!

...but I got the mouth a bit wonky, and maybe gave her a couple of years grace (she can't possibly look that much younger than me!)

oh my - I DO like how you've caught me so youthful and all! No wrinkles, no middle-age sag around the cheeks - ja man - all sweet & 16!! Re. the irises are BLUE - I never noticed the heading at first, my attention was drawn to your stunning artwork! No, its not at all obscure, I was simply unobservant!
P.S. I do have a wonky mouth and I LIKE the years of grace - more than a couple, I'd say!) A JOB WELL DONE, CPG ha ha ha :D

I haven't been looking! I love the red roses, (and have been trying to catch my last ones this morning), I love the blue irises, which were Grandpa Ivor's favourite flowers, and mostly I love our sweet Sugarland sister. Hooray!

Well, without our wonky mouths and years of grace signs and sags and whatever else, we will never be able to go through as beautiful(only superficial)...Gillian in the little picture on the comments are as beautiful as the younger version you've drawn! Lovely work Cathy, it needs a frame...
