Between homeschooling, taking care of a home, and being a mom, there isn’t much time for myself. I try to grab moments here and there to work on my art. Currently I am working on a landscape of a wild field with a couple of rabbits peeking out. There will be other insects and life among the tall grass of the field. The tall light green plants will be golden rod plants. I have only just blockedĀ in their beginning and will be adding color and dimension to them soon. The rabbits will become nestled into their hiding places after I finish painting their detail. Hopefully I will be able to show you more development of this painting next week if time allows.rabbitclose

I have a facebook page for my art that I update more often. Please take a look and like my page.



I really love this product by Discovery Kids. Discovery Kids has not asked me to do a review and I am not benefiting from writing about this product in any way. I simply loved this Geography kit and wanted to share my experience with it and videos of my daughter displaying her knowledge of Geography. The kit comes with a large cloth world map and labels that have velcro on the back so that you can stick them on the map. Sometimes the labels will fall off, so you need to press hard to ensure the velcro stays attached to the cloth map. The whole kit is bright and colorful and a fun way to learn the continents, rivers, oceans, and countries of the world. There are also colorful animals that children can stick on the map and learn where that animal comes from. I picked my kit up on sale at my local department store for only ten dollars. I think they are normally twenty. I really got a good deal and we have had this for a while and it has good endurance.
Here are the videos of my daughter showing off the skills she learned.

I have been working on this painting for a couple of weeks. There are areas of the painting that I still want to work on.

I really enjoyed the challenge of painting this very intricate painting. The painting depicts an image from the pumpkin patch that brought me so much joy this summer.

There are still many details to add this painting, but it is coming along.




Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek at a little painting that I am working on.

This is just a little section of the picture showing pumpkin leaves with light shining through them. I have a bit to go on this. I have been very busy lately with home and church obligations as well as painting. There is not enough time for lengthy blogging, but I hope to make that up next week with a paper making blog.
