life through my lens 16

I've not been in photo taking mode lately. Mostly I've been in panic mode. Somehow I've gotten myself into two shows during the same weekend, and they are in less than two weeks. I tend to alternate between procrastination and panic. I've been finishing and framing a lot and not much picture taking.

I got these two framed up. The one on the left is new. It started out in my sketchbook and I had used Lois Mailou Jone's fabric designs on the chairs. I really liked how it turned out so I redid it last week using the fabric design that I made.

Other than that, it's the usual. Tuesday Eli had a field trip to a Springfield Cardinals game. I think he's so handsome in his hat so I had to get a pic on the walk to school.

Wednesday was a long overdue drink and draw, though it wasn't long enough! We did one of those exquisite corpse drawings and I think it turned out great!

Thursday was the first grade program, Baby Beluga. Clara had a speaking part and she did a fantastic job!

Over the weekend we rearranged the kitchen; that seems weird to say. All this procrastination has me working on house stuff. I had this realization that we could move the fridge to a different spot and that would open up our breakfast nook. We rent this house so there's not a lot of changes that we can make but this one turned out to make a huge difference!

In these photos the kids are writing a Minecraft story together. They are typing on a shared Google doc, each on their own laptop. It cracked me up.

I've been doing all these digital drawings and I miss taking photos of my food! So here's a typical weekday brunch. (Still addicted to jasmine tea with honey and lemon.)

And it wouldn't be a weekly photos post without a dog in the sun!

We'll see how photos go this week but I anticipate it's going to be mostly finishing and framing again! I'll just have to take photos of that.
