I love the idea of sketching the sweet and silly things of life. This is one of those. This past week has been a frenetic race to finish art projects (I have been in art school all semester), support my young sons in their holiday programs, and provide some stability to a home of teens and young adults as they labor through the final assignments of the semester. It is quite a feat.
These sketches are an obvious reflection of a needed & favorite muse~
It is fun to just make some simple circles and see what comes to mind. Why not?
This morning I began the watercolors on my line of chickadees...and they are all from simple circles too! Easy peasy!!!

Our 3D art class was an absolute treasure. Six hours a week we labored in a huge workroom, many of us having to spend hours more finishing projects just to keep up with the course. A small class of art majors and non-traditional students mixed in. Today was our final critique.
A brilliant art major finishing her gorgeous lamp. I told her she could sell it on ETSY easily~
My kinetic sculpture and my final post deconstruction sculpture -- I am so thrilled that they are finished and they were well liked. I think the splinters in my fingers should count for part of the final grade!
Now that my classes are finished I am ready to jump into the holiday.
What should we sketch today?
Try a sketch of simple circles and see what happens~
For questions about what I use for my sketching and painting ~ here and here.
I am going to be doing a class very-soon (mostly in video) detailing watercolors, acrylics and all kinds of messy-mediums. It will be loaded with content -- I promise! I will make sure to include all the questions/answers you may have. We will experiment together!
Jamie~ I owe you for two!!! xo
Hoping your day is merry and bright~
