Changes





WIP
Colored Pencil Drawing
12 x 16"
Change 1: Watching Kids Grow Up
Cameron and I spent the past couple of days in Cincinnati visiting my little sister and her kids. We spent yesterday at The Beach waterpark before all the kids go back to school this week. (Does it seem they go back earlier and earlier each year?) My youngest niece was just tall enough (and brave enough) to ride the big slides this year and told us all that she was having "her tallest day ever". We dodged a couple of storms and had a wonderful time. (That is my excuse for not blogging recently.)
Change 2: Reworking a Composition
But now I'm back to the WIP above; I am struggling to get the layout right and feel a bit better with the reworking on the leg and foot but may need to do some more. Any comments or suggestions? (By the way, I just changed the setting for this blog that you do not have to be registered to leave a comment.)
Change 3: Personal
Oh, I also just cut my hair. It's been a long time, but well overdue. I saw pictures of myself taken at the CPSA convention and thought "my she looks dated and tired" and I never want to be the one whose friends have to take her on the Oprah Winfrey show to be made over! But my oldest son said I look younger, my youngest son said he hates it, but my husband thinks it looks just right. Two out of three ain't bad, I guess.

Hi! Well, the hair is not shown to its best. Truncated shot. Telling the little bye, going off with a friend.
Wait till you hug Him as a grown man. A Captain in the Army, and you hug Him bye and send Him back to
Iraq. Always believed i was doing the best by sending my boys to camp, ROTC, both Eagle Scouts, but to send one back to War, trying to understand how it must be for Him. One day firearms blazing, 24 hours later at home with duddy fuddy MOM! I am in tears,
I have to wash clothes.
