Art Cards 2011 – Week 13
I had a challenging week, finishing homework projects and coming up with ideas for new ones. Then we got a snowstorm on April 1, which was a bit of a disappointment. BUT, April 2 was much more hopeful for us. It was sunny and warm, so we were able to spend the afternoon outside, cleaning up the yard.
As is typical of my style, I chose to ignore that bad snow and focus on something more positive, like planting seeds for spring. I haven’t planted seeds in years, so I am starting out with this small kit.
I picked some of my favorite flowers – morning glories, moonflowers, hollyhocks, daisies, sunflowers, and another variety of daisies.
I decided to continue to be inspired by nature with my illustrations for this week’s art cards.
My favorite poem as a kid was the “You are my sunshine” poem, so I used that for my journaling next to my sun illustration.
Since I planted seeds this past weekend, I illustrated a little seed kit with signs of hope popping up here and there.
