Jade loves it when I line up her stuffy hamsters. She loves it even more when I draw them.
Another of my creations during “Art Time” with my nieces and nephews at Grandma’s.
After I titled the image, I found a 1931 Mickey Mouse film with the same name.
Enclosed below is a link of the colourized version of the animation …
Mickey Mouse – Blue Rhythm – (1931)
At Grandma’s, Jade had a chance to re-connect with her older cousin Sonia.
Lots of times, I’ll see an expression on Jade’s face and I’ll think of Sonia.
Above is a surreal drawing made by Sonia.
Below is a photo of Sonia when we went to a favourite Vietnamese restaurant.
Cutting up some old drawings and splashing around some cool summer colours.
Kooky drawing for Jade … always fun making her smile.
I drew the green seaweed and the top blue line.
Jade created the rest of the drawing.
Those pink jellyfish really love to party.
Lately, we’ve been dog-sitting our neighbour’s amazing black lab.
The dog’s name is Gunnar and he’s eight years old.
He has the perfect temperament for children.
Gunnar doesn’t jump up on people and he doesn’t lick faces either.
He’s the perfect friend for Jade.
She absolutely adores him.
A quick drawing for Jade from last year.
Last week was really wet … Finally the rain stopped.
Great day enjoying the flowers outside together.
Sometimes Jade likes to make different brush marks all over the page.
I love this approach — especially when she uses different colours.
It’s always interesting to photograph different sections. Below are some examples:
Jade liked the cute, geeky doodle … but she wouldn’t kiss him.
