A couple more pictures that were sketched while in the car on our recent journey to/from Florida. Not quite sure why but I decided to sketch some girls with animal bodies. Seemed like a good idea at the time but nobody seems to "get them" or even appreciate them like I do.
They mostly seem to weird people out. I started with the bird girl - she started as a pencil drawing but I needed some color and the flimsy sketch paper I drew her on would never hold up to watercolors I had packed - that is until Corey pulled over and let me run into a Wal-Mart at the next exit and pick up some crayons.
When is the last time you colored with crayons? It had been ages for me. Not since the kiddos were little. They were so cheap too - I got two boxes (two different brands) for a whopping total of $4.32. Now I have so many crayons that I am thinking about doing one of those art projects where you melt them with a blowdryer. (I will admit that I was a bit crabby when I drew snake girl but I felt much better afterwards - maybe I need to do that the next time someone aggravates me)
Now - Have you ever seen a more beautiful picture of a dessert in all your born days? My mom hosts "family night" every Thursday at their house and my brother/I attend with our families. It is a highlight of our week for us all to be together and mom never disappoints with her culinary creations. A couple weeks back I commented that it would be so cool to eat a dessert like what was pictured on the Southern Living magazine and LOOK - Mom made one even more beautiful and it was as delicious as it looks!! Jealous?
