The Everyday Matters Challenge

my shoe

My first entry, the first one on the list, a shoe.  It was easy, I was wearing one.

I didn’t manage to do a daily sketch, my grandson’s Halloween costume had to come first.  More on that later.  For now, the next three I did ….

A well loved object from childhood, one of the miniature pottery cups and saucers from the set that went with my dolls…

Next was something Holiday themed.  This time a Santa I made from one of my husband’s discarded patched Pendalton shirts

And Draw in public.  After viewing American Landscapes at the Grand Rapids Art Museum we stopped for an appetizer and a glass of wine.  I sketched a fellow sitting at the bar.

And my grandson’s Halloween costume, he wants to be a car so here it is.  The touch of red is from Grandpa’s ski suspenders shortened so they fit his shoulders.car front

Wow...love all the paintings. Your days just bloom with creativity. That costume is so original and so fitting given his father's interests!

Nice sketches! Projects like that are good to do...you can easily find something to sketch and it doesn't have to be a big production. Keep them coming.

I think the car is a cute costume!
