ANyone know the date??? the hmmm 17th?




Is it the 31st yet??? No school that day...and i wouldnt be bone tired...BUT i wanted to get this posted before i fell asleep...

I did this one twice because the first one i did in wc...was great till i painted the background...what was i thinking ...doing it in dark green...and it all blended together...so i printed another one and used my cp to color it...MUCH better with that background...too bad i cant sew them together and make the backgrounds blend!

Drew these while i was babysitting a class after school today...the one boy told me he could draw better than I could till another boy told him that i was the one that had drawn the picture of his little brother...well I HOPE I can draw better than an eleven year old...I did tell him that he was the best drawer I had run across at our school...and he is...he also specializes in back flips which hes learning at gym class...and teaching the rest of the class to do at recess...NO SPOTTERS...scary!!!....

One little boy is the son of a friend of mine...she told me i could spank him if i wanted...and of course she knew i wouldnt...but you know there is something funny about being able to say you can...they dont want to find out if you will...so they behave...i actually tried to draw him twice...both the redshirted boys...but the full faced one..he wouldnt hold still..the second one does look like him.

LOL...Oh the confidence of children eh?...So modest too!
Lovely entry Margaret...I like both versions but am swayed towards the green...against those red shirts it sings!

Excellent work. I like the background of the second one too.

I'm a bit behind in email, Maggie, but this is so wonderful. Your kids make great subject matter and you do an awesome job rendering them. So sorry that you are so tired and worn out. Only a few days to go!
