A creative visit

Mama’s childhood bestie is visiting us and we’ve had a wonderful creative evening together. More Diane and Mama shared knitting projects. And for Day 9 of our September Art Challenge, Mama and I each drew and watercolored our favorite candies. Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a creative visit from More Diane! What was your #OneGoodThing today?…

The allure of green fruit

It’s Day 8 of our September Art Challenge and the inspiration/prompt for today was fruit. Since we picked up a large bag of our favorite bright green Emerald Beaut pluots at the farmers market yesterday, I thought it was perfectly timed for today’s art piece. Mama did this glorious, charming and lifelike drawing of green…

Emerald Beauts are officially back!

Emerald Beaut pluots are officially back and therefore it was a great Saturday! But honestly, it was a pretty good one.

Painting feel-good flowers

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was Day 6 of our September Art Challenge: Flowers!

Kindness is Everything. Day 249 of 365. And Day 1,345 in a row…

Our new daily drawing habit

Five days ago we began a September Art Challenge to rekindle the habit of creativity. Mama and I had a lot of fun drawing veggies, our garden, our adorable dog, and more. Today’s inspiration/prompt was water. Mama drew her pretty purple water bottle, and I drew a few bubbles underwater. We also included our drawings…

Late summer evening walk

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was enjoying this magnificent sunset on an evening walk in our neighborhood! For those keeping up with our September Art Challenge, today’s inspiration/prompt is key! Mama and I are still each working on our drawings of a few antique keys. We’d love to see your work too! What was your #OneGoodThing today?…

Of course, we each drew Paisley

It’s the third day of our September Art Challenge and today’s inspiration/prompt was animal. So, of course, Mama and I both had to draw our beloved rescue dog, Paisley. I first tried a close-up of her, but her wrinkles and fur proved too much. Instead, I went with a scene from a distance—a pencil drawing…
