A. woke up rather early - and after a little struggle I realized that it will be better to get up and spend this morning with him and not under my pillow wishing for more sleep. He gave me two pencils (orange and blue - he is making color choices for me again:) and told me to draw - and that's what I did ;)

It was an incredibly windy day. Temperature was ok BUT WIND!!! I usually carry lots of things in case if we end up in San Francisco in the middle of summer - hat, wool sweater, warm socks, hoodie shirt ;) And this was the day we put EVERYTHING on ;) Gathered a nice group of kids in the park and had a wonderful day in spite the weather ;)

Another self-portrait after run - playing with the Pentel Brush pens after a very nice run ;)
And a double attempt at using my son's tempera per his request to paint "immediately with me - right now, please!" %) He was mixing colors and painting with the results. And asked me to use them in my work ;) I ended up with this spread in my sketchbook and he laughed at it ;)

I am dreaming about making my own house sometimes ;)
I read an article about this hobbit hole - a really interesting experience and a nice home ;)
Here is more info about it and source of photos which I used to make these :)

I am back form my wonderful trip and have quite a few new spreads to share about New York but since theer was not time to scan any, here is a batch form last month.
These were done while waiting at the car service center. Good people - they had Lego and comfy chairs for their customers of all ages ;)

Some people broke into my car and stole an old backpack. I am sure they are thrilled to have a bottle of water, 5 diapers, a pack of wet wipes, diaper rush cream, rain poncho and a couple of old tennis balls.
So I had a specialist stop by to fix the car - and get sketched!
