EDiM5 Bed in the Cozy Corner at Mom's

The EDM5 challenge is to draw a bed. The first bed that came to mind is the day bed at my mom's. Its a comfy bed in a cozy little room making for a special get-away retreat. When I decided to sketch this bed I didn't have a photo reference - but I thought of a secret way to get a photo reference. My sister-in-law Amor came to my rescue by taking a photo and sending me the digital image. I think Mom will be surprised!

Thanks for the email. I love your sweet little bed painting. My bed looked like a 5 year old drew it. I was all off for some reason. Just love yours though, so soft looking.

Thank you for dropping by. I had so much fun with this page and I was excited when my mom let me know that she had 'discovered' it on my blog. Very fun.
