2nd installment of TotM

i did finish in class today.  just the second of a seven picture series though…due tuesday.  ay, i do love the pressure of a deadline!  i am doing one more like this one, in yellow, featuring simon starbuckle the third (my six year old loves saying this name over and over again.)  then on to the character profile watercolors.  i’m thinking they will be a simple ink drawing with a couple of props to establish character & some splashes of watercolor.  now if only the baby would sleep for more than a half an hour at a time!trials of the moonfish 009 trials of the moonfish 010

being sparse with setting & background, this one was a challenge for me.  you can probably tell i am not great at doing city scapes, but considering i don’t usually do them, it’s not half bad…right?  my nine year old tells me that this is the best sperm whale he has seen other than actual photos of sperm whales–even though he thinks my blowhole is a bit off.

i like it.  i’m very happy with it.  especially bluejean (who some may notice looks a bit like moses jones)–that’s not a coincidence or a statement on the artist’s inability to draw different faces.  bluejean, like moses jones, is a character based on some of me.trials of the moonfish 002(portrait of the artist as a very tired mama)

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.
