I thought it would be cool to see the before & later the after. A crazy media for painting the koi…The bottom shows how I taught the girls the lines when drawing the fish. I told them to ink- I had not done that yet, so I inked one scale & used what media?
All my classes are three children or less. I find that the smaller the class the more I can get to know & understand their individual skills. Most of the kids come to me after school & they begin art using the logical side of their brain. They press too hard with pencils…its wonderful to watch their frustration disappear when I say, “you’ve got your school brain on, lets switch to the art side” The pencil lines begin to lighten, curves begin to come without effort. The tension in their necks & backs relax. I LOVE IT!!!
Anyway, this class finished their project fifteen minutes early, so I french braided their hair by request & begging.
The arms around one another is a beautiful thing to see.
My son & I were driving to the grocery store. When we pulled out onto the main road, we were behind a BMW, in front of the BMW was a dark blue NEW Ferrari! We were peeking around the BMW to watch that piece of metal silk driving on the same road we do, when H. screams, “MOM, A RACE CAR! A RACE CAR! A REAL ONE! IT’S GOT THE NUMBER 6 ON IT!” I see this car at the Shell gas station. We pull in the station, blocking 4 people & I get out with my iPhone. The coolest man ever says, “Tell your son to come & sit in the drivers seat”
Who is smarter, a cat or a dog? Cat. Definitely the cat.
I forgot about the bucket full of baseballs. These sit in our garage, unused. The iphone shocks me sometimes. It seems to do its best shocking in low light situations. My Nikon would have needed a tripod for this shot.
