The Art of Surprise

This weekend I surprised her by awakening before 
sunrise and moving her beloved easel outside
for a divergent view. A fresh perspective.
All went according to plan.
Except for the fire ant hill. 
That surprised both of us.

After some benadryl, hugs and a shot of brandy
 cup of coffee for mamma, we regrouped on
the back porch. And she created art.

Watch: Dreamer
Listen: Fearless

This is her favorite artistic collection from the library.

Watch: Snoopy Come Home
Listen: David Benoit's Jazz for Peanuts
Cook: Cool Pet Treats 
Read: How to Draw Cartoons

Our boys devour this collection. We incorporate vocabulary
building exercises with art. A win for everyone.
Including our dog, Rocket.

Great books inspire art.

And apparently, summer jobs.
