It's A Foggy Day, In A Foggy London Town--Week 5
watercolor 16" x 20"
This week I decided to experiment. I did what I would consider a watercolor sketch. I decided to not get into the nitty gritty of the details and just capture more of the lights and shadows. It was fun and you can still figure out what everything is. I used a photograph that my friend Matt took while he lived in England.
Below are pictures of the boys room. I finally got it all pulled together. The quilt was made by Brian's mom. She also made Steven one when he was born. I'm sure they will be treasured by the boys for years and years. I now enjoy sitting in the boys room. The best part was that I didn't need to paint the words to the poem "High Flight" around the room, I decided it would be too much. So I'm calling it done. The pictures above the chest of drawers are of grandparents and family, and Sam's framed birth announcement, that my Mom framed for us as a Christmas present.
This week maybe I'll get the wallpaper down in the master bath. I then would be finished with every room in the house.
Steven did another masterpiece this week. Since week 1 he has been wanting to paint another canvas. The first canvas that he painted went to work with Daddy. We stopped in at Brian's work the other day and Steven got to see his art hanging on Daddy's wall. He was beyond thrilled. Since then he has been talking about painting the other canvas (which he calls Candice, he also has made art a verb, he tells me "Mommy I need to art", and can I use this paint for "arting") for Uncle Jon. He wants Uncle Jon to have a painting for his office. So as soon as this one is dry we will be packing it up and shipping it off to Puyallup, Washington.
