My Birthday C Moore age 11

Here are the end result of two wonderful sketches by the children at our birthday, where we explored Monet and the impressionists! The children had a fun filled party, painting and pinata and produced some wonderful paintings! Though the subject was the same, the 13 paintings turned out differently,all with their own personality!

Inspired by Waterlilies T Moore age 13

Life has been busy throwing us her ups and down. This last week we celebrated both the death of a dear friend and young mother who passed away, and the birthday of our lovely daughter - an emotional time. Bittersweet.

and today for the Brave Girls Club

The details of life are awesome, enjoy the ride!
Friends are Awesome!

Have a Happy Sunday and enjoy the moments in your day!

Fairies and Sphynxes Sunday Sketches

"She thought a few twirls were just the thing
for such a lovely afternoon!"

The whimsy of a child spinning with abandon,
with that flushed look of pure joy,
inspired this quick sketch the other afternoon..

My daughter and I disagree as to which hairdo suits her best?
What do you think?

Oh yes and a quick question,
What was awesome in your week?

Field trips are awesome!
Birthdays are awesome (C)
Acting, drama, theater, and plays are awesome!
Skiing is awesome (T)
The energy, wonder and enthusiasm of childhood
is so much more than awesome - it is a piece of life's magic!
