Sweet Sketch Wednesday 173 and Deidre Mosher Designs

It is amazing to me how fast Wednesday's roll around.  The weeks and month seem to fly by.  Sometimes I really wish things would slow down a bit.  Christmas will be here and then gone again before we know it.  I decided the other day that I just need to be happy and enjoy the day that I am experiencing at that moment and not wish for the weekend to come.  I am happy to say that it has made a difference in how I look at things and how I feel.   
I know only too well how short life can be and I think we really need to enjoy it to the fullest, especially, with our family.
I have probably gone on too long chattering so I will get down to business. 
We have a wonderful sponsor this week over at


We are using a special theme: "Celebrating Women"

Formally, Shirley's 2 Girls

Here is Deidre Mosher's Bio

Wildly Whimsical and Seriously Sassy Art is definitely a trademark of Deidre Mosher.

I have been in the business of art for over 25+ years. Starting out as a fashion illustrator, moving into Art Direction, where I did everything from print to TV...and eventually I found my way back to illustration. My art is just plain fun and my love of color is clearly evident in the designs I create. I'm currently licensed with a variety of designs are used on craft products, greeting cards/paper products, kitchenware, business products and such.
I am first and foremost an...Illustrator and Designer. I am inspired by seriously sassy & bold colors, but also love the 'wow factor' of classic black and white designs. I'm crazy for stripes and dots, and they are a repeated theme in my work.
As an Illustrator, I work in many mediums and styles, ranging from the line art to pastels...having fun adapting them to the latest project. I am inspired by some my favorite artists ...Matisse's use of bold color, Klimt's knowledge of figures and lavish attention to detail, and Gauguin's wild approach to his subjects. They are all so 'awe inspiring'! I'm happiest when I am in my studio and starting a new project...making a mess, experimenting...and even throwing paint.
Any day in the studio is a great day!

I usually get an idea when I least expect when the 'light bulb' goes off...I sketch and sketch and sketch...(hence the reason I buy tracing paper in bulk). I always begin with a pencil and paper, and it evolves from there. My favorite part of the process?? EVERYTHING...from beginning to end.
