"To Say Thank You"

scented pristine white
a thank you for our luncheon
such a thoughtful gift

Mixed Media (graphite, wax crayon, acrylic, felt markers)
on paper

I haven't posted anything in a while because I've been working on some commissions (I'll post when finished.).  However,yesterday, while my grandsons were creating in my studio (they love Papa's studio!), I created too.  Phoebe and Bill had sent us these beautiful lilies after attending our summer luncheon last Saturday.  I just couldn't let this wonderful opportunity of "capturing" them in my own way pass me by.  So, while Jacob (8 yrs.) painted a very symmetrical composition with primary colors (looks like a rectangular mandala), and Zachary (6yrs.) a rabbit standing by a tree, I used mediums at hand applying them to a sketchbook page.  I think having my boys around inspires me to be as "free" as they are with spontaneous creativity and use of any medium.
We always have so much fun!
