A post about nothing!

I haven't posted anything new in a while, so I was feeling like I should. We went up to my parents' last weekend and had a great time. Other than that I haven't been up to much of anything. I haven't made anything for a while. I daydream about what I would like to do too much!

In case you're curious I would really like to do small oil paintings of abstract flowers I like to doodle, large mono prints from nature photos I (will) take, and large wood block prints of historic buildings. Also would like to figure out what to do with drawing other than portraits that I would enjoy and be more 'fine art like'. On a completely unrelated note, I'm realizing that I'm a big fan of run-on sentences! ;)

So here are a bunch of random photos!

Jacob with his hair chopped!

Crazy wild children!

I like the blue icing with his blue cookie monster shirt. This is Leo's pose for the camera which my mom pointed out, was him imitating the camera person. So cute!

Have a great day!

There's a Fungus Among Us

This giant mushroom popped up in our yard the other day. Jesse and I went out to inspect it today. Jesse noted how it differed in appearance from the Mario Kart mushrooms.

This thing is very large.

Have a great day!


Super Easy Bean Bag Craft

This is a little craft Jesse and I did several weeks ago. He was just beginning to draw faces, very cute! I had him draw faces on craft felt squares with a sharpie. Then I sewed them into little bean bags that we filled with beans. He made the brown one for himself and the blue one for Leo :)

Jesse really enjoys making things and I really enjoy finding fun projects for him.

Latest Pencil Portrait and Art by Jesse

I LOVE this drawing by Jesse. I asked him to draw some happy people on this little card and this is what he drew. He told me just what to write for the caption. This is what it says "A sad person with a vitamin on the side of his head next to his ear with two really long fingers."

And here is my most recent portrait drawing. I promise I really am going to have a way to order on this blog soon!

Have a great week!
