However, amidst all the heat, I did manage to finish the piece in Riley's book. It's been a busy past month. We went on two separate week-long vacations, so I haven't had a lot of time to do art, and it felt good to be back in the studio, even with the heat. The piece is about his naptime/bedtime routines, in particular his whale that plays music. I swear I replace the batteries in there at least twice a week- he plays it constantly while he's in bed- as he's falling asleep, during the night if he wakes up, and then in the morning as well. It's a well-loved part of his routine. Here's the photo I used, which includes the whale and also his two naptime books:
The picture at the very top of the post is one of all the treasures I collected during my trip last week. My mother and I went out thrifting/antiquing one day, and I found several cute things, which my husband of course thinks are pointless. Good thing he went golfing several days, so I can use the money he spent on that as justification! Since the first photo is a little small, here are a couple more detailed ones:
Love, love, love the little elephant with the cart!
Well, I hope this post finds you all a little cooler than I currently am! Once we've got the air going again, and I can tolerate it upstairs, I am planning on doing a bit more art to catch up for all my time lost these past few weeks. You'll be the first to see it here!
