These two lovelies are my granddaughters, Winnie and Sevin. Winnie is five and Sevin turns one tomorrow. Happy Birthday, sweet girl!

I found this beautiful video on YouTube that I think is perfect for this challenge and the music is great.

Makes me wonder why some trees grow this way.

Love the views from the glider in this video

Making Art is a Family Affair

….today was a very productive day for art making

Not only did I complete two more watercolour abstracts but my husband made three more paintings and our granddaughter made a drawing with her mother after watching a youtube video.

Thursday Trios – Week 4

why not join me in this new challenge

There are no restrictions as to when you post during the week. Anything goes….photographs of trios that occur naturally or ones that are staged and if you want to add quotes that incorporate the number three that’s a bonus. Just copy the link and paste it into your post and it will ping back to me. Have fun!.

Covered Up – Day 21

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/21/square-up-21/

For Day 21 of Becky’s SquareUp challenge I found one of my favourite historical museums in Toronto all covered up for restoration work. This is Colborne Lodge located on the edge of High Park.

From Start to Finish

I love this kind of painting

My first layer with the two that I finished today is a free flowing streak of black ink. In order to continue with water colour I had to let the ink dry completely.

The next stage is to add blocks of watercolour over the paper and leave some white areas.

Now the fun starts. I make random marks using pencil, pencil crayon, marker, ink and more watercolour or acrylic. I keep playing until I’m happy with the finished product and then I sign it and remove the tape. Both pieces fit into a matt with an 8 x 10 opening.

Fed Up…..

….with all the folks trying to feed him from their hands

This little guy decided to go back to chewing on bark rather than approach the kids trying to feed him from their hands.
