The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Angel with Kitten progress 2

~~I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Our family did. It was wonderful to have an extra day to spend together.
~~Saturday Dustin took care of the girls during the day while I painted. It was nice to have some time to completely concentrate on my work and the girls love to have "Daddy time." I got a lot of work done on the hair, which is like working on a complicated puzzle. I still need to do a little more layering but that part is close to being finished. The photo is a little grainy because I have it at a low resolution. If you click on it you should be able to see it better.
~~Yesterday was very windy and a bit dreary but it was perfect weather to fly kites! We went to a park with a big open field and the girls had a blast watching the kites soar up in the sky.
~~Sierra has 3 more days of school this week. (Yes, she's already graduated.) We're all looking forward to the summer but I've been thinking that I need to come up with a plan for some fun things the girls can do. Sierra is so used to having a very structured day. That worries me just a little. I think a trip to the Dollar Store is in order so that we can stock up on sidewalk chalk, bubbles and other summer items.
~~I'm hoping to get some more work in on this today. I'm starting to see it coming together and that gets me excited.
~~Happy Tuesday Ya'll!

Nice job so far. Lucky you, a whole day to paint!

We've been watching a lot of wicked weather this spring in your area -- are you guys missing all of that?

So pretty! I always love the detail you put into the hair in your pictures!
Daddy time is wonderful for everyone! :-)
The kite flying looks like it was a lot of fun! I love the picture of Savannah!! I could almost feel the Oklahoma wind in my face! LOL!

Hi Kasie

I am so happy that you have finally been able to have some time to paint. Painting the hair looks like such an intricate job, strand by strand. You are remarkable and it looks amazing.

What a great way to spend time outdoors on a windy day. Kites are always so much fun.

It sounds as though you have already come up with some fun ideas for your girls to do over the summer break. Would they be interested in treaure hunts or tea parties?

Love and hugs to you my friend
