visited mom and dad for dinner on Sunday.
(Mom made her special chicken...YUM!)
then went back again on Monday
to help decorate their tree
along with my sister and her 8 year old twins.
I took my sketchbook...
to the absolute delight of the twins
immediately filled in a page...:)
It really felt good to get back into the sketchbook
mode...I have let my sketching skills
go by the wayside this past year...
they are in desperate need of attention
What better time than the holidays to
jump start a renewal program!
All my entries above were made "lead free"...
drawn in ink "straight in "while
either standing at the kitchen counter
or seated with book in my lap.
I just added watercolor
and the floral detailing on the twin's page tonight.
what a delightful couple of days we all had.
it was such great fun to simply go
across the valley and be
“A man travels the world over in search
of what he needs,
returns home to find it.”
