Christmas Morning

“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 hippy earrings and natural soaps…I like that kind of thing:) But do I ever love just watching the kids! It brings me back to childhood. The excitement and anticipation of Christmas morning. 
Funny, though, how they play with the new toy for five minutes, but they’ll play with the box the toy came in for half an hour! LOL!!

Dora’s Dinosaur Rescue

Dora’s Dinosaur Rescue for Sketchbook Project

I decided to try to have a little fun with a still life today. I’m trying to read “The Artist’s Way” right now, because, aside from the sketchbook thing, I’m feeling a little creatively blocked. I don’t really know which direction to take my art, now that the show season is over, and I’ve done this big, serious, exhausting commission. I feel like I tend to take myself and my art a little too seriously anyways. I probably just need to marinate for a while, but I still feel driven to paint, I just don’t know what or how…At any rate, the Artist’s Way talks about nourishing your Inner Child…so I brought out the toys:) And since the theme for this sketchbook is Girls and Boys, I grabbed some girl toys and some boy toys. This tense standoff is what ensued, lol!
