We took the boys out on the mountain loop to find snow last weekend.
Being out in nature, watching my kids play, often puts me in a mood to paint. Sometimes I’m able to maintain that mood and retain the energy until an opportune time. This was one of those blessed times.
I realize I painted them looking like babies. They are growing so fast! But in my heart they will probably always be my little babies. ❤️
My cousin was recently blessed with a handsome little boy. Well, four months ago. Today I finally gave her this name illustration I’d promised her. I’m very happy with how it turned out. They are a very outdoorsy family. Horses, hiking, skiing and dirt biking. I’ve no doubt this little man is in for an adventurous life. 🙂
Ink and watercolor on paper.
A friend of mine just had her first boy. I am so happy for her. I made this little painting for her. I also wrote the little poem to go around it. I don’t think my poetry is anything to write home about, but I like that it gives context to the illustrative theme I chose. It was all inspired by a story someone told me about a boy who collected pill bugs in his pockets and his poor mamma who washed his jeans without checking the pockets.
