Merry Christmas

I spent several days during Christmas at my son and daughter-in-law's house.  I took my watercolor sketching stuff with me, as I expected to do a bit of sketching with my seven grandchildren.  But with seven kids and three adults, assorted presents, cookies, food prep, etc., there wasn't enough room to do much.  Plus, the kids had choir practice and someone always had some activity they had to go to, not counting video games and nerf gun chaos.  So I only got one sketch in, and only two of the kids painted with me.  I did have a lot of fun though, and didn't eat too many cookies.

Did the kids paint the poinsettia too? Nice job!

No, they didn't paint the poinsettia. Kateri painted a flower with grass, blue sky and sun. I don't recall what Louis painted, but it was wet and drippy. LOL!

Dear Michelle - your poinsettia is beautiful. Sounds like you were kept busy over the Holidays. Take care and have a very Happy New Year.

Happy New Year! Beautiful painting. You got more done than I did. Grin....

Thanks, Debbie and Jo. Yes, the grandkids kept me pretty busy.
