I’ve begun a series of little drawings/paintings of my parents, siblings, and cousins…all from a wonderful day spent last September up in the High Country (where my people are from:) I believe it was a Saturday, celebrating my dad’s birthday. Everyone except for me and my kids, had camped out in the rain the night before. They were all tired, waterlogged, perhaps a bit grumpy…but the sunshine was clearing all that away. The kids were having a lovely time playing in the “crik” there at Price Park where we were having a picnic lunch. The drawing of my dad makes him seem a bit severe…but it’s only because the sun was in his eyes. He’s holding my sister’s fourth child whose not yet old enough for frolicking in the crik.
This is about as good as we will get from my mom:) Hee Hee. She’s never been keen on having her picture taken, but she says even more so now, because she will end up in a blog post!! Right you are, mommy! There will be more to come, more to show you, more to explore and play around with color and line. And yes, more of my mom.

These are wonderful–and yes, we want to see more of your mom. She’s so lovely.
Good for you. These are really expressive and I really like how you rendered them.
Yes, these are wonderful, and what a great idea! nancy
Wow, they are great! Stylish and expressive.
You have a lovely strong style. The drawing of your Mum is great – lots of character expressed here. My Mum would do the same thing !
Beautiful! Love the colors and composition.
Great sketches of a wonderful family.
These are great sketches! I love them–so lively and expressive. I don’t think your Dad looks severe at all. He seems to be concentrating. There is something about his lips, or maybe the colors that give him a kindly look, imo.
This is a beautiful post 🙂 My mom does the same whenever I want to take a picture of her too hahahaha. But the drawings are amazing, absolutely love the colors.
I really enjoyed your post. Your drawings are wonderful. I think you should consider have books made of the whole series when you finish. You know, for the family.
oh, and I think we may have the same mom. Mine looks just like that! 😉
These are awesome. I love that you caught your mom even though she was looking away.
OH, I love these! Great sketches! I know how your mom feels, because I feel the same way. 🙂 Will be looking forward to seeing more of your family.
Wonderful page, I love these! My mom does the same thing!
