|First gemstone painting|
Gemstones in your Zentangle anyone? Okay, it's all the rage now on the Facebook groups. Come on, you HAVE to keep up here. So this is just my first ever try at it.
I see it can be kind of addicting. I need to give my watercolor students their grade after the 3 workshops. Everyone got an A. Thought I'd make it a cool one.
Okay so this is my grandson, Mike, sending me a Happy Thanksgiving card. On the front is his cat. Very nice cat.
But inside is this. Okay help me on this. My first though it is Mayflower with sails bringing over the hapless Pilgrims.
But it looks for all the world like they have a trolling motor on board. (Mike is an avid fisherman…his dad does have one of these). It must be early in the morning or late in the evening as the sun and stars are out at the same time. Always an amazing event when that happens.
I adore kids' drawings. They are so wonderful. Mike has not yet been told he can't draw so he does and he can. In a few years he'll stop. Somewhere in there we lose that fresh joyous spirit that says "just do it" and we forget how.
And then someone will have to re-teach him again when he is 40.
