I don’t make a lot of animal art but I really enjoyed making these art hands for a trading buddy on one of my swap sites. Pandas and sloths are really my faves to draw because they’re both so ridiculously cute! The hands are my hands traced and that’s part of the joy of trading this sort of art. Not only is it wonderful art from friends, it’s literally their hands and I love that. I collect art on hands and once I have them displayed on my wall, I’ll take a pic and show everyone. These hands are watercolor and markers.
My second youngest daughter moved out this week and it was a little sad. Honestly, I’m not really the type to be upset at kids leaving home. I love them all dearly but I also totally love it when they move out and get on with their own lives and adventures. They love it too. Freedom! This daughter has her first apartment all on her own and it’s pretty exciting for her. It’s a cute little place and she has her adorable cat for company. She’s bringing her laundry round on the weekend though so some things haven’t changed much, LOL. Kids, right? I only have one kiddo left at home now though she’s only 11 so she’ll be here for a while. Yay! It’s getting to be a much quieter house now.
In other news, I have a new graphic set out – this one featuring pretty pink peonies and butterflies. It’s almost time for spring, right? I’ll probably end up using this set myself in some art. I love peonies so much but they’re a bit of a pain to paint!
Happy weekend, everyone!
