My week often involves at least one visit to Tacos Jalisco to eat lunch and draw. One of our lessons at Sketchbook Skool is to lay paint on a page and draw over it once dry. This is my second "Mexican Flag" painting with patrons at the Mexican restaurant over lunch. You can read this art journal page to see who was there.
A different lunch was a week and a half ago at the Academy of Sciences where I went to draw with these women, one I had met at Sketchbook Skool and who I learned lives fairly nearby me. We drew all morning and shared our art afterwards over lunch.
Last Friday was Grandparents Day at my twin grand kids school. I've been enjoying this day there since they were in Kindergarten. Now they are in 4th grade. Later at their house my grand daughter drew in her art journal while I drew her doing just that!
Her twin brother enjoyed his soccer magazine, probably thinking of his upcoming championship game. I enjoy drawing these kids and encouraging them to draw too.
On Saturday we went to visit my uncle Harry. He is grieving the loss of his beloved Mimi who died on May 2nd on her 95th birthday. They were together for 69 years. This is not going to be easy for Harry. He was asleep in his chair when we got there. I drew him before he woke up. Then we spent an afternoon grieving together and getting him to tell us stories of their early life together.
At my other blog, Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens we are drawing to the theme of "Daily Life" for two weeks. I drew my art supplies on my drawing/computer desk, after buying some new pens. One just cannot have enough pens. I liked the Faber-Castell colored pens I found in the scrap booking section at Michael's this week.
And I wrap up the week with lunch once again at Tacos Jalisco. I sketched these folks quickly as I waited for my lunch before hurrying back to work at my office down the street.
I thank you all for dropping by to see my art efforts.
I appreciate your leaving your comments.
Have a creative week!
