Beautiful eyes

Over the holiday, curlygirl took up a pen and sketched out an eye.
Then she took a pen refill and broke it open and used it to color it in...
the result is beautiful.

But THIS one is even more lovely....she did this entirely with the broken pen, using the plastic to drag the ink where she wanted it to go.  
This eye reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor's because of the brow.  Beautiful.

I am jealous of my daughter's gift....but so happy she has it.  I don't know if she will use it after high school but I hope she does.

Curly girl sketched Mojo while in class the other day.  As with Ginger, it was just her way of working through her grief....

He was a sweet boy and is missed......

We all grieve in different ways.  Curly girl took to pen and paper when Ginger passed away.

more school "work"

I forgot to post this for Curly Girl.....It is my new favorite.....okay, so everything she does is my favorite.  But couldn't you just see this on a t-shirt?

I could....and I would wear it!  I think it would be lovely.  BTW, this is an original sketch so no using it for your own.  Feel free to link back though......

puttering with pottery

Kaela had to do a "mammal" in art class....out of clay.    Kaela likes to sketch so this "clay thing" as she kept calling it, drove her crazy!

I took lots of little photos of Ellie....such a cute face.

But this one shows her color off best.  

 She is happy in the china hutch with all the other lovelies!

One of Matt's friends asked for a sketch of a penquin.....I love how lifelike this little guy looks.

Still entranced by eyes..........

I love to watch her fast and effortless, like breathing.

"the eyes have it..."

Kaela was messing around with some eyes she found on pinterest.  She has been practicing reflection and luminescence.  

I think they turned out beautifully.
