Today's photo is of a volunteer in my front yard. We did not plant any sunflowers this year, but I am happy to see them anyway, even in places where you least expect them.
I had a couple of guest artists over this weekend and am pleased to showcase their art here:
This is Miss 7. She is a natural artist. This painting was made with Copic markers and depicts the garden Papa planted in her back yard. From the left she has string beans, sunflower, tomatoes and potatoes.
This is Miss Almost 3. She, too, is a natural artist. She did not share with me what the subject of her painting was and I suspect she was doing some kind of color chart. Although I think I see a butterfly on that paper.
I have a sketch in progress for you. I am not happy with it yet - the head is too flat and the mouth is a disaster.
It is supposed to be Miss 7 and amazingly enough her first cousin knew who it was right away when I showed it to her. I would like to fine tune it a bit and then paint it with watercolors.
I am leaving for the UP later this morning and will be without internet access. I will take a sketchbook and maybe work on the Drawing Lab or EDM challenges. Of course, there is the chance that I will be playing so much Yahtzee and Cribbage and watching the Tigers that I won't have a chance to draw at all.
At any rate I will be back some time Wednesday and will try to catch up with you then. I am planning to take my camera and get some good photos to share and to use as subjects for my next watercolor attempts.
I will miss you while I am gone, but look forward to catching up when I return. One of the most enriching activities for me is reading my email and checking the links to view all your wonderful art and of course reading the blogs to which I subscribe. I am always amazed by all the fabulous, warm and sharing artists there are out there all around the world and feel very lucky to "know" you all.
