July has come and gone and I'm back down in the studio, only to discover a layer of dust on all the projects I need to get going on. No regrets, though. Had a wonderful time with grandchildren, particularly with O who flew in with his parents. His dad spent the month in a Jackson Hole ER doing a residency stint there. His mom stayed with O at our house, when they weren't doing vacation stuff. O has discovered the wonderful world of Harry Potter. We spent alot of time making wands (tutorial here), reading, practicing spells, and pretending we couldn't see O when he had his "Invisibility Cloak" on. We also spent many hours doing Legos...Avengers, LOTR, and Harry Potter. I also knitted my 5th Gryffindor scarf for him to take home.
He now wants me to paint him as Harry. I was able to sketch this with all his specifications. It will have to wait while I pick up on the children's book.
