Passions of an Odd Chick

Two Good Reasons

I'll give you two guesses as to why I've been absent from my blog lately.

I had a week with my two grandsons. I tried to talk them into letting me take them to Six Flags or a water-park and stay in a nice motel- but all they wanted to do was go to the farm. So we farmed and played in the park and swam in the little pool in my little town and they (and i) were perfectly content.

I did get to sketch a little and work on different expressions.

But, hey, it's hard to watercolor in 109 degree heat sitting at the swimming pool so these are a little rough.

I'm getting a little bored with these and would really like to be working on canvas or watercoloring on Yupo but these will have to be my art fix for right now.

(she's got serious complexion problems, but she'll get over it- maybe on the next page)

I've enjoyed some serious inspiration from the blog world and hope to share some of that with you soon.
I hope you're enjoying your summer.

O.C., I couldn't do these in 109` heat sitting at a pool...
I'm impressed!

So happy to hear you've been enjoying some family time. Your girls are gorgeous! The second one, with her eyes closed, really speaks to me. And, oh, how I can relate to complexion problems with the last one! Happy summer, chickie!

Good to hear you've enjoyed some time with your family, Chick. I absolutely adore your expressions work. Fabulous! xx

I could not do anything in 109 degree heat! What you need to do is take that beautiful photograph of them from the back with their arms around each other and in your cool hopefully air-conditioned studio paint a watercolor of them! That photo screams to me that it wants to be painted! So glad you're having time with them!
