As I write this post my 8 yr old is singing and dancing to the following song:
Yellow Diamonds in the light by rihanna and that is another Random Moment of Delight LOL, very funny and heartwarming to see.
So yesterday I had a bit of time and instead of being attached to the computer or tidying up which I might add is much needed, I decided instead to sit down with my youngest and do some ‘art’.
I have always loved pencil drawing/sketching and was going to sketch my son as he painted but he moves around faaaar too much so decided the dogs were ‘sitting ducks’ excuse the pun. They were happily snoring away in their basket, my frenchie’s face was rather obscured as it tilted down and away but hopefully you can make out at least a ‘dog’ in there.
Meanwhile I did a very light sketch for my son and he coloured it in with watercolour paints, I was actually pretty impressed how he kept within the basic structure. We are going to work on this a little more, but it’s going well so far! hehe
Last but not least I did some zentangling and was obviously feeling the lurve! SammyD from Bemuzin introduced me to zentangles they are so relaxing and meditative.
I also wanted to say I really was thrilled at Meghans Random Moment of Delight’s post this Sunday, she highlighted how easy it is to get addicted to blogging and lose sight of what one initially started to do and or lose time through blogging to do the things one really should be doing as a hobby, ie concentrating on one’s art if that is what you do.
When I got back from Devon at Easter, I set aside Fridays to do ‘art’ and so far havn’t done anything apart from yesterday. I don’t blame it all on blogging and blogging in fact has brought me much, especially with encouraging comments from my readers in this area and others, so it’s just getting a happy medium, pooling everything in that is important and delegating and finding the time to do as much as possible as well as of course completely nothing 🙂
I hope you like the ‘art’ and thank you for reading/viewing xx
