Nice weekend up north. Went camping at Old Orchard Park, which is not far from Kyle's parents. They stopped by with Damian and we went on the "Hay" ride (a pun since there is no hay)—so you say "Hey" to everyone in the campground.
Damian was shy the whole ride and Di put his hand up to say "Hey" each time. He remained kinda bashful until it was over.
At the end, when the truck parked and the next group was waiting, everyone was quietly unloading and then Damian raises his hand and waves to the next group and says "Hey!" It was sooo cute. Everyone laughed. He literally waited until the end. 😂#preciousmoment Some swans came up to me at one point thinking I would feed them. Kyle and I went to Lumberman's monument and generally had a great weekend. Need a firepit for the backyard. Love sitting around a fire. #oldorchardpark#damian#babyd#camping#weekendaway#bonfire
Was getting discouraged because I'm wayyy out of practice. Did some doodles and sketches the last few nights, feeling kinda blah. Then it occurred to me to draw what I love to draw most! Hair! Christine always complimented me on my hair drawing abilities. 😂💇🏻 Thanks, Dean! Until tomorrow....good night! #drawinghair#hair#shading#alvindraftmatic#mabgraves#newartsupplies#backatit
While upgrading some art supplies, I had to look at the brand for my yellow .3mm mechanical pencil I've had for almost 10 years.
I'm pretty sure I bought it for Larry's Drawing I class in Fall '08—it still has the Delta bookstore price tag on it. 😂 #nostalgia
Anyway, I looked up the brand and come to find out they did a limited edition artist set! According to the artist's statement, they approached her to produce a line with less gender-neutral colors, breaking with 60+ years of tradition. And they are one of the few brands, if not the only one, to branch out like this. 😳 Awesome. 😍
Needless to say, I got all 3 pencils available and am more than excited to try them out! 💖💚💜🖊#alwaysthere#fineartist#mabgraves#alvinpencil#alvindraftmatic#draftmatic#backatit#inspiration#funcolors#larrybutcher#deltacollege#drawingclass#newartsupplies
