My Little Bird - Part 1

A conversation today...

Guy: "I have to ask you a very direct question."

Me: "What?"

Guy: "Have you been using Mr. Sketch markers today?"

Me: "No, but I'm a teacher and I do use them sometimes. Why?"

Guy: "You smell like them."

Me: "Which one?"

Guy: "All of them...but mostly cherry."

Me: "Wow."

Guy: "It's very pleasant."

So I have no idea why I have that scent, but I'm thinking if I'm ever in a pinch I'm going to just put a dot of the red Mr. Sketch marker behind each ear.

And I started a new painting. This one is of my little guy when he was a little guy.

I started by painting a very simple
version of the background.
I did a very basic sketch from the photo I'm
working with. My little guy is wearing a fun
outfit he liked to wear back then.

I'd love for you to share my art and blog with the links below.  Thanks!


  1. Hahaha - I'm still laughing!!
    Can't wait to see your sweet painting.

    1. :-) It was the best question I've been asked in quite some time.
