ME - "What word do you think of when you look at this girl?"
CALEB (13) - "Sad."
ME - "Sad?  I think she looks stalwart and strong.  
What would you name her?"
CALEB - "Melinda."

Yup - made no sense to me either - LOL.

Coffee Stain Friends

Friendship is born at that moment
when one person says to another:
"What! You too? I thought that no one but myself. . ."
                      - C. S. Lewis

These two girls just discovered a mutual love of coffee and the color brown. . .(two of my faves as well!)

Rebecca Lopez

ME - "How would you describe this girl?"
CONNOR (17) - "A white lady with a fiery Latin temper." 
ME (confused) - "Okay - what would you name her then?"
CONNOR (matter of factly) - "Rebecca Lopez"

LOL - That kid cracks me up every time - love the honesty that your children give you!

Coffee Stain girl - #2

Had so much fun with the other coffee stain girl that I did it again - honestly, I have a pretty strong feeling that there will be several coffee stain girls before the 29 FACES challenge is over. 
The first girl was mostly acrylic paints but this one is pencils only.  I'm really enamored with the white that peeks through.  When I'm splashing the coffee around it is really hard not to paint the whole page but I make an effort to leave some open area for contrast.

Basket head. . .

the best plan was to walk a mile every day carrying a basket upon your head

Not sure about the basket part but I'm pretty confident that walking a mile every day would be a good plan!  This girl started as a coffee stain made in an art journal with my morning "cup of joe".  Does that mean that I put my paint brush into my actual mug of coffee?  Why yes it does.
The only downside to that was there was less coffee to drink - sometimes that one swig can make a big difference.  Am I right?

Yellow Ochre!

"The mind is like a parachute,
it doesn't work unless you open it."
             -  Frank Zappa

Another girl that was drawn in the car - All the males in my family hate her even though I remind them to open their minds and look beyond the thick neck and all the yellow ochre.  Personally, I think the world would benefit from more yellow ochre - what do you think??
