Summertime for sketchbook project Oh how I miss sunny, warm days!! I got a little bit nostalgic, looking at some photos from this past summer. The kids loved the hammock. They’d spend so much time in there, swinging and playing together…they always got along if they were in the hammock.
Her Very First Day of School–for Sketchbook Project It was her very first day of school, waiting for the bus. She’s clinging to her big brother’s hand. She’s only four, but here we have full time pre-school. I kind of thought four was a bit young for full time and was of a mind toContinue reading “Her Very First Day of School”
“I Got It!” for the Sketchbook Project Christmas Day! My nephew opening his “BIGGEST” present with my daughter and son watching…they were almost as excited as him…It was also the first time they’d seen him since last year. I don’t care so much whether I get presents for Christmas anymore…this year was small things…eclectic hippyContinue reading “Christmas Morning”
Read Me a Story — 8″x10″ oil on canvas You’ve all seen this image before, if you’ve been following, but I loved how the sketch turned out so much that I wanted to turn it into a painting. This started out as a color study, but I ended up liking where it was going, soContinue reading “Read Me a Story”
The Old-Time Hat — 8″x10″ oil on canvas NFS This was my son’s favorite hat for a while. We got it at Barkerville, an historic gold-mining village in Northern B.C. where they re-enact the history. He loves it there, and he calls this hat his “Old-Time Hat”. This is another painting I finished yesterday inContinue reading “The "Old-Time Hat"”

We were given this rustic cabin onContinue reading “Fishing for leeches”
Goodnight Sweetheart for Sketchbook Project The boy…I couldn’t resist this one. There was still a lot of light coming through the window so I shut off the flash. The photo is blurry, but it captures the wonderful, soft window light. I love my boy!
Once Upon a Time — for Sketchbook Project Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I last posted. That’s not like me. Well, my life just got silly busy. I’m catering for the road crew that’s repairing the damage after the flood, and I’m working on a large painting, and I’m designingContinue reading “Once Upon a Time”
Cup of Tea? for the sketchbook project I found an old family photo album the other day while digging around in a box for an art book. This is a picture of ME, age six, and my dog, Max. He was so funny…every time my parents would aim the camera, he would race to beContinue reading “Cup of Tea?”
My Little Artist — Sketchbook Project My little darling Rhiannon, from life this morning after breakfast. As soon as she sees me sketching she jumps up to get herContinue reading “My Little Artist”
