Painting a Bodega Bay sunset

I marked the end of this challenging week by painting this beautiful Bodega Bay sunset that Mama and I saw on Monday (after enjoying the best fish tacos ever)! Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was remembering our fun adventures from Monday and capturing them in painting! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Kindness…

Creative month ends in love

Our month of creativity culminates today with the inspiration/prompt: love. This daily art challenge has been a labor of love. Yes, perhaps some dishes went undone, and laundry lingered. But Mama and I rekindled our love for drawing and painting with watercolors. Today I painted “Art is for Everyone” as a statement. Being an artist…

This creative outlet was a beautiful way to end a busy, but wonderful day. Two different friends came to visit us today and we…

Leaves falling onto our sketchbooks

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was leaves falling onto our sketchbooks. What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Kindness is Everything. Day 268…
