drawing challenge/everyday life



My everyday life; my kids. 
My constant companions, my loves.
My everything.


This little portrait of my kids and I was indeed a challenge.  With a smudgy paper and hands, so many hands to draw!  I should have done some actual practice when I had the chance.
See what you find in the everyday lives of my friends.  Visit Elisabeth's beautiful blog.

lovely...

Wonderful. I first enjoyed your pictures from Palm Springs and was happy to see the photo of you. "So this is Rachel!" I thought. And then I found your drawing and was impressed by how you captured yourself in a quick sketch. The two posts were perfect together! :)

Yes Rachel, you did capture something special in this drawing. The same essence that runs through your blog (if essence is the right word, i think it is, i am up late) And interestingly, I look at you and your family with new eyes now. Informed. I loved hearing how you married your high school sweetheart. It has made visiting here even richer. I often wonder if i give enough away in my posts, enough of the real me....

Dear Rachel,
you've met you and your kiddos very well! Wonderful drawing... and what about a family drawing with Zach, the whole family?

I dream of a family painting of my family by the way...

I've got really the feeling that we know us... and yes, dear, it would be very nice to meet you in real life!

Love,
Ariane.
