Reflection


It has been over a week since I last posted in my blog but a million things have been in my way and also the fortunate arrival of a beautiful grandaughter. I thought I had a good picture of her last night but it is blurry. Hope for better luck tomorrow when I go over and help with the bath. It is such a precious moment to carry a baby and watch how it examines every part of your face with such interest and curiosity while it clutches it's hand to your finger.

We have had a values class at Wet Canvas in the Drawing and Sketching forum and it has taken me away from my painting this week but I do have another abstract on my easel hoping to be finished tomorrow. In the meantime I will post a partial of the drawing for the value class.

Mary, congrats on your new granddaughter! You described the same experiences I had looking at my new son, thirteen years ago! Nothing beats that first real interaction. I bet you are proud too! :) A fab drawing and a challenge too, I'm sure.

Congrats on your new granddaughter!
My son is 9 months old now and a real joy. Everyday is trully a new day through his eyes.
He is my muse and the reason for my creative endeavors.

Great drawing so far. Looks like a challange.

adding my congratulations on the new arrival ... grandchildren are the biggest joy of all.

and your drawing is beautiful. I sometimes think that drawing is a lost art but you surely have the talent for it.

Mary said...

Thank you Lesley! I feel that way too about drawing but there is something to it that pulls me back everyonce in a while.

Katherine said...

Many congratulations Mary. I can imagine you might be wanting to do a few new drawings.............

Mary said...

Thank you, Katherine! yes I have been thinking of a monthly portrait of the baby.

Katherine said...

That's a fabulous idea and you maybe could give it her as a portfolio when she has grown up?

Robin Neudorfer said...

Such an exciting time for you.
Your drawing during all of this is wonderful. I am sure quite a bit of art will come from the joy in your heart. Enjoy your time with her.

Mary said...

Thank you Robin! Little babies grow so fast that each moment in her life should be enjoyed fully.
