Drawing During Self Isolation.

Try some self improvement while you have time on your hands. I want to improve my seeing/drawing skills.

My favorite way to make mail art is to use a combination of collaged magazine images and my own sketches and paintings. These examples are from a few years ago.

Getting My Holiday On

I love shiny Christmas decorations, especially on the tree. 

I also love the handmade ones. 

I inherited a couple of boxes vintage Shiny Brites. One year Target had some that looked very much like the vintage ones. Of course I had to add those to my collection. 

What kinds of Christmas decorations are you drawn to?

Another Sunday Selfie

Yesterday my oldest granddaughter turned 15 (how time flies).  I drove up to visit with them today. 

Before I left I sat down and did a quick selfie this morning.  
Hehe! I look a bit like the saggy baggy elephant.

Portraits and Self-Portraits

Making art with the grandkids is something I love to do.  I really enjoy seeing them explore and develop their creative muscles. 

Yesterday we drew with pens and painted each other with watercolors. 

Uncle TJ by the 7 year old. 

See me on the bottom? This artist is 12. 


I get top billing this time. The artist is 13. 

She wasn't very happy with her chin....

My turn to give it a try. 

We had lots of fun and laughs while trying to paint each other.

Well actually I'm still wearing them.  With the exception of a couple of days of cool weather, it is still in the 80s here.  How about where you are?
