Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Saturday, August 6, 2011

Yes, Pom Pom, I did receive your package! Thank you so much for the colored pencils, which I will put into use coloring my Pom Pom sketches. I love the fat "little kid" pencils! How cute! Your drawings are wonderful, as usual. Is that Old King Cole dancing around? Here is my rendition of the little fairy girl picture that you sent
My granddaughter is doing fine. Mother and daughter are working on adjusting the nursing/bottle routine so she will gain some weight, but they're getting there. We're enjoying rocking her!

School starts officially on August 22, but my online Chemistry class will open on August 15 so we can get a head start. This one will be challenging just figuring out the webcam, headset, microphone, etc. used for Webinars. Sheesh! I almost freaked out when I got the email from my instructor listing all of these things, but I'm going to try to be philosophical about it and just do my best and let the chips fall where they may. I really have to trust God this semester. Lots of classes..This is the picture I'm working on for the Sketchbook Challenge. The theme is "Everyday Objects", and I thought the pure colors from one of my little watercolor boxes were so pretty that they ought to be used just as they were for a colorful little vegetable picture. I'm going to do some outlining and it will be ready to submit.

Keep up the creativity! :D

  1. LOVE this post! Of course, I love ALL your posts! I will pray for you as you soldier through the chemistry class. You'll do it. YOU are a smart kid! Smile.
    Babies and nursing. It takes a while. They get it eventually and babies do gain. It's scary as a mom.
    I LOVE the chubby pencils and they feel so good in my hand. If I always have chubby pencils, students will not take mine. They are "too mature" for chubby pencils, but I am not.
    Didn't do any art yesterday. I watched Jane Eyre. Loved that. I listened to More All of a Kind Family on cassette (sort of a mistake I made while ordering old books!) I think my next endeavor will be with the sewing machine and paint. We'll see. Right now, I shall go upstairs and get my coloring you sent and blissfully spread brightness while I drink my tea.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
