Today I completed an 18″ x 24″ watercolor of a nook in my little boy’s room. I wrote quite a bit about it yesterday. To learn more, scroll back a day in my blog.
It sure is a color bonanza. Me like color!
My favorite part of the painting is the Suzani pillow. It’s very bold. I also like the green quilt and red sheets. I think they communicate fabric quite well.
Right as I was completing the painting, I lifted a whole bunch of purple out of the leaves in order to communicate the window as a light source. I might add some muddy purple tones back into the plant. It seems a little more Day-glo than I wanted. However, sometimes it’s just the photo I took. I’ll wait until morning, look at it in the day light and make my decision then.
OK. that was it on the art-front, but a lot happened this week on the mom-front too!
I took my son rock climbing and he amazed us both. He climbed right up the 100ft wall! However I think his favorite part was more likely the repelling himself down than the climbing. He had a blast bouncing, swinging and dangling from the harness. I was very proud of him. NO FEAR!
Lastly, my daughter spent the week rehearsing circus acts through CIRCUS SMIRKUS. The program was 2 hours a day for 5 days and at the end it culminated in their very own circus performance.
Circus Smirkus teaches many valuable life skills such as perseverance, tenacity and confidence. It was great to see all the families cheering and the smiles on the kids faces as they accomplished a skill. Even as they failed, everyone would cheer and they’d try again. I love that philosophy. Keep trying and never give up. It was a lovely experience. If you have a school looking for fun extra curricular program, look up Circus Smirkus. We give it two thumbs up!
So that is what is fit to print. We had a crazy week filled with colds, fun and adventure. We need a couple of days rest, but then I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next week!
