More March faces

This is my birthday gift to my brother who loves his boat. I like that Calgary -where he lived for years- is on the map, as well as the waters in which he loves to cruise. In the close up you can see that the back windows look like eyes looking forward. They brought a smile to my face but I think I'll change it before I give this to my brother as he may not appreciate the cartoonish look that this gives his gift.

This enchanting young woman represents my darling daughter and she really IS a lovely person...inside and out.

A lot less than one-a-day but so much more than one-a-week. So surprising to me...from me.



Hurrah! a sunny day for beach walks with friends. for visiting elderly friends who've just moved into a Seniors Village. After the driving rain with howling winds we were treated to yesterday (first day of spring, indeed) today was certainly a treat.
The young one is important to another DD, the regal woman...my grandmother from a photo my brother had copied from a slide our dad had.



I don't know these girls yet but they are important beings in my DD's life so I've attempted these from pictures I was sent. Hopefully they are close enough to be recognized by the girls as I have added names and printed off copies to put on or in scrapbooks as we're having 'camp cousin' at the beginning of spring break and while enjoying our beach holiday/sleepover extravaganza I want the 3 (DGD included) to be drawing, colouring and pasting in their own art journals.


March: Parade of Faces

Well, well, well. Missed February entirely, did I? I'm not surprised. It is, after all, a very short window of opportunity for the posting disabled.
The winds of March should energize me (though the rain may sodden my ambition) I'll give a go to sketch (not post) each day from photos as otherwise all I'd manage is my sweetheart slouched in front of the TV.
On the left, our DGD. The interesting bit for me with this one was seeing the different sides of her gene pool as I moved a line here or shaded a contour there. Curious as I haven't really captured her to my satisfaction.
The right hand drawing is me as a toddler and yes, my ears were and are that big and I do look cross eyed in the picture but not, thank heaven, in real life. LOL
