"Time is at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions."
- John Randolph
The passage of time has been on my mind quite a bit this week. Our older son just turned 17 and, as every mother knows, the time has flown by since his birth.
A recent car conversation went as follows:
CONNOR (age 17) - "Mom, did you realize that the year 2048 is as close in time as the year 1980 was?"
ME - "Thanks, Connor - you've managed to make me feel even older than ever."
CALEB (age 12) - "Mom probably won't even be alive in 2048."
This girl was drawn in pencil over a wash of yellow ochre watercolor in my sketchbook.
I recently found The Ink Draw blog and LOVE how she draws hair and wanted to give it a try.
The different sections of hair do not stand out as separately as I'd like but all in all I am happy with my first attempt.
Her eyes were initially painted only in gray and blue but a little addition of orange pencil seemed like a good idea in the moment and made such a big difference!
Linking to Paint Party Friday,
