Sketch Finishing & Beginning : :

Finished Cocoon Sketch

Pencils, pens, & Pyrex

Floral sketch beginnings..

On Saturday morning, even though Friday night my children all promised me we would sleep in if I would just let them stay up a little later than they have been on school nights, we were all up just after 7. I woke up thinking that my plan had backfired - BIG time! They needed more sleep, I was promised more sleep! But we started our day, ate breakfast, and decided we would spend the morning drawing together while we wait for the sunshine.

I was wrong. It was perfect. And, although I wasn't sleeping, I looked around at my children creating next to me and down at the paper in front of me, and it truly felt like a dream world!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! So glad you are sharing this side of you again. I've just started diving back into my love for art again as well now that Im a stay at home mama. Funny, i worked with arts for the home, but never had time to enjoy or cultivate my own creativity until I stopped:)
