On Monday We Make Things
Over the weekend I bought some better quality paint paper. Oh how wonderful to not have Feintsje's works of art turn into something resembling rest area toilet paper.
I'm trying to do fast sketches without worrying too much what they look like. This is not an easy thing for me to do. Hopefully I can stick to it. I'd like to at least turn out a set of note cards or something. I haven't yet decided whether I prefer colored pencils or watercolors. It is nice though, not having to wait for colored pencils to dry.
Feinstje started out by painting the fruit snacks he had for a morning treat.
But after he finished, he thought they looked more like colorful fish. I would have to agree. On Mondays, we make things while having loads of fun doing it!
We did get in a walk around the block before the rain came back. It smells SOO GOOD outside in the spring!
I'm the mother of three grown children, and I have a son-in-law and two daughters-in-law who are gifts from God. I've been married to The Husband God Gave Me (THGGM) for 38 years. On January 1, 2006 I became "Beppe" to Jonge, who was quickly followed by Famke, Kado, Feintsje, Hertsje, and Broeder. They have real names, but these are what I call them on this blog. I've always been boring and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Because.., well.., I'm dreadfully GOOD at it!
