“A child’s attitude toward everything is an artist’s attitude.”
This morning, my 8-year-old son Morgan called to me from the living room: “Mom, come quick and draw me! The cat is sleeping on my lap!” So I stopped washing dishes and came over. Here are two sketches!
It’s fun to start the day with a quick sketch or two… Here is a recent sketch I did of my 11-year-old daughter, Nell, practicing the viola in the morning. I can’t believe she is in middle school now!!
Recently we spent the weekend at my sister’s house, where we had a big family gathering. I did some more little sketches of my sister nursing her new baby.
So, that’s all for today. I have a lot on my plate right now with family and art and business, and I’m struggling to do all the things I need to do right now while also getting enough rest. So…. I’ve decided to lower my standards a little and let the blog take a back seat for awhile. I’ll try to continue to write blog posts fairly regularly, but I might not be doing it on a weekly basis. And sometimes, they will be short, sweet, and simple, like this one.
Give yourself permission to rest today!
