Summer Sketching: Vibrant Lilies

My children go back to school today!  My 9yo daughter is heading into 5th Grade and my little 6yo autistic son finally heads off to Kindergarten..  He'll have a lot of help with a full-time aide and his sister close by, but it's still one of the most emotional experiences for me. Letting this little bloke loose on the world, this precious child who has been through so much is not easy for me, but it has to happen...he's ready.  I'll probably spend most of the day crying, but that's ok, I've earned those tears and I plan to shed them.

This summer sketchbook page was done in watercolor and watercolor pencil in a Stillman & Birn "Alpha" sketchbook.  These lilies sat on the east side of my house and put on the show of shows this year.

Today is also my 50th birthday...are you kidding me?? So, in celebration, today is the last day you can sign up for the special price for Mastering Twinks Online Classes (Part 1 & Part 2). 

These two classes are on sale for a very special combined price for today only!

Have a great day, I know I will! xx
