Anyway, back to real life... artmaking, playing with the kids, and thrift-shopping...not a bad life, when I look at it that way! Below is my first piece in Riley's new book. I decided to try the verticle format, like I've been doing for Noah's book.
This is a piece about what a well-mannered little boy he is. He is so good about saying "Thank you", and especially about saying "Sorry!".
I'm in love with the color palette of this piece. It wasn't planned out; it just became as I was working, and I just love it! I want to live in these colors, if that makes sense! I already have a couple of them in our great room, and I'm seriously thinking about trying to incorporate the other colors somehow to achieve the same palette!
And in other Riley news, I was just thrilled the other day when he initiated this project:
That's all for now. It was nice to hear from all of you who commiserate with me about the sentiments in the piece from my last post. Parenthood is mentally such a hard job, isn't it? Thank goodness there are so many good parts to balance out the hard ones...
