When life gives you limes make limonade.

This weeks IF was Wrinkles. I have hardly had time to think on it since I was busy with the web server and then with this painting I need to finish (and, um, well, I have been reading a lot as well.) Anyway, I finally came up with something about 5 minutes ago and thought I would post it so I don’t skip another week even though I didn’t do anything to it since I NEED to get to bed.
What could be more wrinkled than the basket of clothes that has been sitting in my living room while I do all this other stuff?
And this is for my husband who requested that I color the doodle of him I did yesterday so he could use it as his forum icon. He is so funny. I would have used this for wrinkles since he is starting to get them but they are only visible when he smiles and you can’t see them from the back of his head–which is what we usually see. 🙂
Had a hard time coming up with something that worked for “Homage”. I did this one today based on the kids last summer. It was a hot day at the park and the kids were getting a drink from the water fountain. Consider it a homage to two things–summer fun and sibling love.
After watercolor (at my husband’s request.)
This is from January last year . It was the first time in years that I had tried painting. I was stuck in bed with nothing to do (no tv and out of books) until a friend brought over a full set of tube watercolors, lap easel, and paper that she had bought for herself before she got into photography. It is based on the sketch below was from a month or so before–capturing my Essie engrossed in a book. I am still not happy with the dragon but oh well–it fits the theme well. 🙂
