Good Morning Cyber Friends! It's early here on Sunday morning but I was awake (and the kids aren't) so I figured I could post a little something.

DS and I have been exploring art as part of our homeschooling. It's been fun. We spend hours drawing. We checked out books from the library on drawing and I bought him a drawing kit. He loves to draw. He always has.

I love art. I love to look at it and I dream of being able to do it. I took up painting when DS was very little. I did a few paintings but they really aren't any good but they're mine. But this drawing thing... I really enjoy it. (I did the painting too.) Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not using my imagination or anything. (Heaven forbid!) I just follow the directions in the books. Of course he picked out books on cartoon drawing...hehehe.... but mine are cute.

Well, anyway, DS has totally been encouraging me and wants me to draw more so we went yesterday and were looking at books and different pencils (I like color he likes plain black pencils). Well, I thought maybe I'd try the Watercolor pencils but couldn't find a book on them. (Remember I said I don't use my imagination.) So we start really looking for books and anything with patterns to follow and I remember my painting books! Why can't I use them! So there, that decision is made, now I just need to pick pencils. Well, I decided to just use the kids colored pencils until I'm happy with what I do and then I'll come back and get some good pencils, whatever kind.

We came home and I did a pretty spring drawing. It's not very good and it probably looks like a 5 year old did it but it was fun. Maybe I'll scan it and put on here later. Just don't make fun!!! Okay, here it is. Don't laugh!


  1. It's always great to find a creative outlet. I knew you could sing but I didn't know you could draw.

  2. me either. And really I can't. I'm not good at all. I just find it fun. I'm posting my first real try with the color pencils.
