Amaryllis, a purse, and something blue

A quick sketch of some amaryllis I've been meaning to paint
An old purse and my husband's wallet. For EDM Challenge #3.
I better start adding new ones or I'll never keep up :)
This is Midna, from the Zelda Twilight Princess video game.
I painted her for an art show on Friday 11/18/11 for a Legend of Zelda Art Exhibition celebrating 25 years of the video game series. Hundreds of people came to the event, and she was placed in the front by the entrance, which was pretty cool :)

A sketchy painting mess

So I decided to put together something today. Since I'm horrible at coming up with things from imagination, maybe this is a good start. Below is the sketch that inspired the painting which turned out a lot different with advice from my 3 year old :)

My birthday cake!

It's my twin sister's birthday today too but she didn't get to have cake with me since she lives an hour away and we both worked. I usually make cakes, but I'm taking a break so I decorated this one with my little girl. Up top are dipping cups we used for some colored vanilla icing :)

Trees and Pumpkins and a Lamp (EDM#2 - Draw a desk lamp or other lamp)

Last Saturday my little family enjoyed the nice weather outside and while we ate our lunch and discussed future projects, I sketched one of the Mulberry trees in the yard...but to be honest it had more leaves than the sketch shows

On Sunday we carved pumpkins, my husband did a Donald Duck one from a stencil out of a DVD we purchased recently. I helped my little girl with a Goofy. Then the kids went off to grandma's and we did a date night-we were supposed to go out but my husband hurt his we stayed local.

Monday was Halloween! My little girl got to trick-or-treat around Main Street with her dad, then more treats after work! We were all tired when the night was over and she'll have candy to last until next year
And before you know it, it's Friday already. Tuesday I worked, Wednesday I stayed at the office late, and Thursday I stayed home with the kids-my daughter and I played in her playhouse wearing our red dresses while little brother napped :) Anyway, this is my husband's lamp that I bought for him years ago when we were just girlfriend/boyfriend. For EDM#2 - Draw a desk lamp or other lamp. Plus I just like the lamp :)
