Wise owls

I love looking for patterns and shapes in wood and stone. The tricky thing about it is if you don't quickly capture the image on paper, you lose it! Look away and when you look again it becomes something else. 

I was sitting on the balcony of a log cabin staring at one of the posts when I saw these owls. 

I left a blank page where I'm going to paste the photos below into my journal.

Can you see the owls in the logs? Or do you see something else?

Monkey See Monkey Do

My little five year old loves to work on his "projects" just like Momma.

Today he comes into my studio, announcing he needs some paint and paper for a new project.

I clear off my table, moving my books in progress far out of splash-range. I set up a placemat on the table, a tarp over my rug, and an apron over his clothes and let him go to town.

Apparently he was inspired by my art journals! This was all him, no prompting from me at all. Children have such a talent for color!
