The Other Side of My Easel: Whimsy Sisters (part three)

Hello Friends! 

It is wet and blustery here in the Hoosier state—a great day to stay indoors doing something for my creative side.
I hope that you have had some time to get creative too!

As promised, today I bring you the third and final installment of the Whimsy Sisters. If you missed the last two posts, click here to go back to part 1 and get caught up. 

Drawing these girls has been very freeing and fun….freeing because they could be anything I wanted them to be, and fun because, well, they could be anything I wanted them to be! 🙂

Seriously, you never know what will come out of your imagination when you give yourself permission to PLAY
And that was the whole point…

So let me introduce you to the third of our trio:  Lucinda

 

Lucinda

What is there to say about Lucinda?

Well, to start with, she’s somewhat homely, unlike her other two sisters. She doesn’t wear the nicest clothes or have a fashionable hair-do. She doesn’t attract others with a sunny disposition or sparkling charisma. 
But she is practical and friendly. 

Lucinda is, in fact, the glue that holds everything together in her family of three.
For example, she is the one who makes sure that the meals are made, the cat gets let outside, and the plants are watered. She is the one people can count on.

When her other two sisters have a problem, they go to Lucinda. You see, she is a good listener and a steady friend.

Did I mention that she carries an umbrella and a little bucket around with her? The bucket is for collecting her tears which she uses to water the flowers, and the umbrella is for, well, you never know when it’s going to rain!

See? Practical.

Here is the start of Lucinda:

And finally, here is Lucinda with her two sisters, Penney and Maggie, after I added a fun background of dots using the leftover colors on my palette.

I hope you have enjoyed this series. I have enjoyed sharing it with you!

Until next time,
