Koala’s Need Glasses, Too! : Daily Art Practice
Isn’t this little koala bear adorable? My son received this for Christmas to hold his glasses. Speaking of glasses, we spent some time at the eye glass place today because my son broke his glasses. Usually, we know it is time for an eye exam when his glasses brake, but this pair lasted over a year! Maybe he is growing out of destroying a pair every few months, wouldn’t that would be exciting? When I went to schedule an exam, the earliest was 3 months out so it’s a good thing he has a backup pair. It seems to be the norm now to have several months wait time for Dr.’s appointments. Another reason I am thankful that we are healthy. I can’t imagine how difficult these wait times are for people that are in pain.

Today’s shopfront is LE Brun. It is a beautiful restaurant in Paris that has delicious and elegant looking fare. I read that the exterior of the building is known for its black marble. The reference photo I used is HERE. Instead of painting this shopfront in my shopfront sketchbook, which is 5×5, I opted for a larger 5×7 piece of Arches Watercolor Paper. I wanted to accommodate the height of the building, which can be tricky in my smaller sketchbook. I used Holbein Artist Watercolors and Caran d’Ache Gouache .
For those of you that have been to Paris, have you been to LE Brun?
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Yogi Tea Stomach Ease. I just ordered another case of this tea. I drink 1 cup a day and it really helps regulate my digestive system. AND it taste good too. My son loves this and always asks for a sip. I haven’t told him it’s for digestion.
Happy Tea Day,
