sketchbook friday {No.1}

IMG_2566

Technically this is not in my sketchbook. It's a gouache painting on a piece of brown paper. But I could totally tape in into my sketchbook, if we were picky. (We aren't picky, are we?)

I painted this with the intent of putting it in Ralphie's room, but it ended up looking pretty girly. I've already got plans to try again for next week. Think boy, Amelia. Think boy!

In other news, this week took forever, didn't it? I'm so glad it's Friday. Next week is supposed to be so cold-- in the single digits! So I'm going to try and spend as much time as possible out and about with the boys this weekend before we're forced back inside on Monday.

Happy weekend! Let's party.

  1. That's lovely! I admire a good gouache painter almost as much as I admire those who can spell "gouache" without looking it up first.

  4. I was sent to your blog by someone who you-tubed a how-to on flying butterflies. Well, I have to tell you that once I started I couldn't stop and read (devoured,actually) every post you've written! ...all the way backwards to your very first entry. Reading someone's life story backwards is fascinating, by the way. Not that I don't have a life of my own at age 68. Your photos are extra-ordinary in their simplicity, and your narratives refreshingly honest. I can hardly wait to read what happens next...

  5. This is beautiful, Amelia! I love it! Seriously. I would hang it in my baby's room, boy or no (and he's definitely a boy). I am looking forward to seeing more of your art.
