Newest Painting— "A Mother's Love"

"A Mother's Love"
18"x24" Mixed Media 

Finally, carving out some time to paint again! I just finished this piece for the Seminole County Healthy Start Coalition. The mission of the coalition is to provide a system of care that guarantees all families access to prenatal care ans all infants access to services that promote optimal growth and development. This painting will be auctioned off at their gala in October.

Hope everyone has a great week!

4th Grade Book Report — Summer Assignment

Well, the new school year is now in session and my 4th Grader had to bring a book report to school on the first day! His class had to read, "The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary". He had to answer a few questions and either make a poster or a comic strip about the moral of a story or fable. Wesley chose one of the stories from the book and re-enacted it with Legos. We had fun working together taking pictures and finding the right Lego angry faces for his comic strip. (Click on the image to zoom in).

Fonts used: Comic Book and Lego Thick.
Comic Strip Templates available here.
Making this comic strip was really fun and easy! I think we'll definitely use this idea again!

This Summer is Sizzlin' and Jigglin'.

Another one of our summer favorites is Jello Jigglers! Just mix equal amounts of Jello and Knox and cut out cool shapes with cookie cutters! 
They're a hit with the kids!
