as i said most days in may



posting two since i forgot to post any yesterday....the kids arriving for mothers day weekend kept me busy yesterday!!...in a good way...

this is a sketch from a photo of some of the kids hamming it up for the camera for Hat and Sunglasses day...the little girl in the middle is actually just gorgeous NOT that you can tell in this picture...the letters were supposed to be red UNTIL I smeared them ALOT ...only thing i could do was to paint all the outside background red and add blue letters....

OH the hat...Edgar was so eager to get to reading group that he just discarded/abandoned his well loved orange baseball hat on the table...also done from a picture...shouldnt take a picture of an orange baseball hat on a RED table...NO contrast!!!

in my wc moleskine with faber castell colored pencils...

I am really enjoying your May artwork. Your watercolors are so lovely. I bet the children love being your models.
