The weekend before last, my granddaughter Sage spent three days with us…….
That is exhausting, and fun all at the same time, but we were happy to have her!
Our plans included visiting friends, and her cousin Nolan,
and taking a little time to play….
shopping for doll clothes, and of course,
Her latest love of books includes The Boxcar Children…
Sage is eight, and she has been journaling, and writing stories for at least the last year. I’m always impressed when she reads me one of her stories, and shows me her illustrations to go with the story. They get better all the time, and I am bursting with pride because we love all the same things!
Last year my granddaughter Sage, who was seven at the time, created this Halloween collage. I love the way she tore papers, glued them onto a canvas, and stenciled over the papers. All this time without even realizing it, she was checking for balance, and she put a great deal of thought into her design. I think it turned out pretty good for a seven-year old.
Today, I asked her what her plans were for a free day, and she replied since it was cold out, she thought she’d do some sketching! That’s my girl!!!
My inspiration in part comes from Zebra Designs & Destinations, I’m going to show her this blog in hope she will find some kind of inspiration also, check them out, it’s a pretty interesting blog!
I’ve been experimenting with some new ideas lately, and this is one of them. I particularly like the pencil showing in my sketch, and the stencil work in the corners with molding paste.

This is a sketch of my husband, Les playing his trumpet while at a concert. I thought it might make an interesting abstract painting.
