Tropical Plants and Fruits: Daily Art Practice
My posting has been sporadic as of late, including my creative time. Due to a recent family death we have had a lot of opportunity to visit with out-of-town family. My littles have enjoyed seeing their cousins that they rarely spend time with. I love seeing the backyard full of children, running and laughing together. It has been an exhausting schedule for our low-key family, but we have enjoyed every minute with the ones we love. I find myself saying, “When things slow down…”, but then summer is coming. Will it really slow down? My oldest is itching to get his first job so if that happens, I may be starting a Curtesy Taxi Service. No matter, I look forward to soaking up time with my littles. At least we will have Tuesday Tea together. I better get planning.
Any suggestions on Tuesday Tea themes?
Isn’t this pot pretty? I found it at Walmart and it is the perfect planter for the various tropical plants leftover from the funeral.
Daily Art Practice
I didn’t get to watch all the videos in this year’s Sketchbook Revivial but I got a chance to watch a few. The first two sketches are made using watercolor and colored pencils. It was an exercise in using large shapes as well as my non-dominant hand.
I have always wanted to learn more colored pencil and I was SO excited when I saw this colored pencil portrait class. I would definitely like to do more of this. I didn’t finish her face off yet but here is how she might stay for a while.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies today, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Tension Tamer. A classic tea that I drink regularly. It is very soothing and perfect for any time of the day.
Happy Tea Day,
