Sniffs, Snuffles and Sunday Sketches

I'm so late joining the PPF link today... but I've got a slight dilemma at the moment... have I caught a cold or am I suffering with hay fever for the first time in my life? 
Both my hubby and son suffer with allergies and the pollen count must be really high around here at the moment, because they're having quite a time of it. 
I'm not so sure my symptoms are hay fever, even though my hubby thinks it might be... I'm coughing, spluttering, snivelling and sniffing like a true professional sufferer, but I think it's a cold. 
This is one of the reasons why I am late today... it's difficult to get your act together when you are constantly sneezing, sniffing and generally sinking amongst mountains of tissues.
I suppose it doesn't help that I keep bringing flowers into the house to make floral arrangements.
After working in my garden, I like nothing better than to fill a vase with all that's on display at that time. There's always something to bring in to appreciate.
I'm so happy that I've managed to do some artwork even with all the disruptions during this past week and I have to admit I really enjoyed creating and painting the design. 
I read that Alexandra MacVean over at Bluechairdiary.blogspot.co.uk is running a competition for a new Sunday Sketches logo over at her place.
Here's my entry above...
Alexandra is moving to the UK for six months and wanted a suitable logo to reflect her move there.
She also wanted to incorporate a tree in some way as the original feature for Sunday Sketches has a tree included in it. 
It's been a very sporty week with the Euro Football Championship on the go... along with the Tour de France cycling, plus Wimbledon too. 
Obviously my newly retired hubby is in his element and wants to keep up to scratch on all the developments... which means I can sneak in some great fun time creating art! 
I'm beginning to be a real sports fan after all ;D
I used the under painting technique that Tracey Fletcher King taught in her Delicious Paint Class. 
I'm a huge fan and can't imagine painting anything without under painting now.
So here's the final illustration as it might appear on the link... what do you think?
Maybe take a trip over to Alexandra's place to see Sunday Sketches and other entries.
In the meantime... thanks for popping by and I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead. 
Have fun and enjoy!
