gosh where has the last week gone! lol! its been jam packed! some fun...some not so fun. here's some pics from the last week...
my son read the book house of mirrors from the ulysses moore book series and created a scene from the book in diorama format. you can get the book on amazon by clicking this link > Ulysses Moore #3: House of Mirrors
we got branches off trees in the backyard and created trees out of them by crumpling & compressing aluminum foil around the bottom of the branch and painting it brown. many of the other elements were cut out of cardboard and aiden drew on the other elements from the scene in the book.
the crane from the book that was supposed to demolish the house. the name of the demo company was something to do with cyclops...hence the one eye

i worked on getting some collage backgrounds done on some small watercolor paper pieces (4"x4") last week...
along with working on a commission painting for a lovely customer (this is just a cropped detail of the painting, which is still in progress).
and now today (and yesterday too), the kiddo is home sick from school. trying to keep him resting is NO small feat! even when he's sick, he's a busy guy! i couldn't keep him on the couch....he kept moving from couch, to chair, to floor. this boy let me tell ya!!! he doesn't stop goin' unless he has a high fever! makes it quite hard for his body to get well quickly since he has such trouble resting. so that's what's up with me this week. my class at my studio went great and i have some pics, but haven't downloaded them to my computer yet....so i'll have to leave that for another post later in the week once the kiddo is back at school. :)
oh and p.s.....there are a few new prints in the shop that i managed to work on while being here at home with my sick little man. so please go check them out at the link below: http://pauletteinsall.storenvy.com/
