Green is my new favorite color! Not just any green. This one you just can't stop looking at it.
I was watching Oprah interview Carrie Underwood and I just couldn't help it! THE SHIRT.
I must get it...so dramatic, but LOVE it.
I just took a quick snap shot of this watercolor. 
It's still drying.

Have a great night=0)

Happy Friday!
I am super excited that one of my favorite shows started last night.
I love to dance and I actually believe I can dance like this....I so canNOT. LOL!
I thought I'd show you what the first wash looks like and then the finished watercolor. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

My other job....
Me-I think you should think about taking a hip hop class again.
X-It's so hard.
Me-But you had fun with all the other boys....right?
Me-Well, think about it. I'll check it out if you want.
X-I know that you just want me to do it since Dad can't dance at all.
Me-HA! You got me.
X-Well, we don't even have any weddings to go to anyways.

Sunday fun

 Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I was up and ready for the art festival in North Park.
First J made sure that I had a big breakfast;oP

I set up everything and was ready to go!
I think my favorite part is getting to know all the artists and see all the fun stuff they enjoy creating.

Don't forget I do have a 20% off on my Etsy shop this Spring.

I had a little fun with my bag and painted a sky with acrylics=0)
I can never leave anything alone. LOL!

Have a great day,

My other job.....
X-So you are leaving the house today?
Me-Yep, I have the art festival.
X-How long will you be there?
Me-All day.
X-What am I suppose to do? 
Me-Ask Daddy...maybe you guys can go do something fun.
X-.............................I can't believe you'll be gone all day. Are you sure?

Shadow girl stationary

Teacher appreciation week continues, so I thought I'd make some fun stationary for X's teachers. The theme is deserted island. What would they need? Stationary of course. Those bottles need letters....right?

Across the pond.

 I've been working on a new watercolor...Across the pond.
I think I've been missing France lately, so I was inspired while looking through photographs.

Stocking up my shop!

 Super excited that I'm all stocked up with my cards!
Stop on by and check them out=0)
They are fun thank you cards or a fun way to send out a little greeting.

I had to include Roquebrune Village. It's located in the South of France. I just fell in love with it and had to paint it=0) Can't wait to visit again.

Happy Mother's Day all.

My other job.....

 Yes, I'm still reading my book and my next exercise was to draw myself.
Pencil with ink. Freckles are missing, but so is my smile. The degree of focus was off the charts;oP

My other job....
Me-So what are we reading tonight?
X-You can just watch me reading.

The sketch goes on.

Hola! So, I got a new book that I can't put down. Advanced Fashion Drawing by Bil Donovan. I've only had it a few days, but I just keep reading and looking and reading and sketching. It's like I can't even walk by it without reading it. Anyways, it mentions that it's a good idea to just sketch and sketch and sketch. I've got pencils always sharpened and papers all over the place. J is thanking me for drawing her pictures that she can use her markers on. X is getting upset that she is "destroying" them. They crack me up! So, here is one that I have with my model X. He stayed like this watching Team Umizoomi and I needed to use a live model for my next exercise. He laughed when he finally looked over at me=0)


My other job....
Me-I'm so glad you had a great day!
X-Yeah, +3 Super Star.
X-You know a lot of the other kids just stay on Super Star and that's good enough.
Me-Well that means you had a great day, but anything + means you had an excellent day.
X-I knew you were going to say something like that. I can already say your whole sentences before you even say one single word. You don't even need to talk anymore.

Me-You should just take one thing. 
X-Uhhh.....okay this.
Me-One thing.
X-Uhhh....okay this.
Me-One thing.
X-Uhhh....okay this.
Me-Open zip lock again....take everything out....take ONE thing...seal zip lock.
X-That's not fair.
