Grey day - indoor relaxing




Played with two drawings today, watching old movies and relaxing after a hectic week. Pen and ink and markers and watercolor. - I was going to make these into ATC's but can't cut them up! So I'm printing them and will cut up the prints. I thought I liked temporary art, but find that maybe I don't. !!!

Mim, these are just delightful. They have pieces large enough to make into appliqued collages too. You ought to try it. I bet you'd enjoy it. These are great kid pictures. Love the female person where the fish ends and looks like her ballerina skirt...or maybe it is that! ;-) such fun!
You are GOOD!

Oh Mim, those are wonderful. I really love them both. Whimsical and healing at the same time!

They are so zingy, and the colours are lovely.

Thanks all, when I printed them out I realized that I wanted to put them in little frames and give them to my niece and nephew in California - real beach kids. I just might do that!

Geez! On grey days you create such lively artworks? Then what will you have on sunny days?
These two are so cute... love to sit and look at them for a long time...so energetic and delightful.

Ugh! Working in a freezing zone. I'd be miserable but maybe I'd loose weight just from constant shivering. The airplane sketches are neat and I hope that sleeper did not snore. Your family theory is hilarious. I like your drawing style Mim, especially the features on the guy with striped shirt. Keep warm.

What a perfect antidote to a rainy day! Actually, I'm not even sure I could make such cheerful images when the weather is gray. I'm so glad that yo decided not to cut them up. I think you should frame them and hang them one above the other on the wall.

I LOVE these - I can see a whole children's range - pictures, bedding, curtains, wallpaper borders etc.!

These really are beautiful. No one would ever know it was gloomy outside when you drew this colorful pieces.
