I had some of my family over yesterday and my Great Niece and Great Nephew were among the guests. This is the first time they saw my house and the studio.
I finally found a little free time to sit and make art with them.
This amazing little painting was done by my Great Nephew, Joshie. He's seven years old!
He didn't look at any references to draw his desert scene. And this was his idea. It dawned on me that I could use it for Cactus Monday and show it off.
So we have a Saguaro, a scorpion and a tarantula on the rock, a jack rabbit, a snake and a lizard. I think this is awesome!
My Great Niece, Josh's sister Alex drew this frog. She drew it from looking at an antique ceramic frog of mine. I love how she put the fly in there for a touch of reality! She's nine years old.
I know it's not a cactus BUT it's green! And I love it.
All that housecleaning and stress was worth every minute of yesterday's visit.
Happy Cactus Monday and Frog Day! ;)
