illustration friday/paint party friday : imagination

imagination : illustration friday

After a desperately needed, lazy, delicious, and largely non-productive summer, I'm easing back into my imagination with some help from my old buddy Illustration Friday and my new pal Paint Party Friday. A simple combo of watercolor, ink, and thoughts. Stop back on Monday if you have a chance -- I have some fun things planned for Artsyville this fall and I'll tell you all about it then! :)

Wheee! I'm so glad you've decided to join in the fun, Aimee!

This was a particularly great one to read... I love that you bought a lamp to avoid changing a lightbulb?!? Hahahaha!

p.s. Travel moves me too ;)

Haha, what a list! I like how you wanted to be sure we knew it was the crayon box with the sharpener, and that you bought a lamp so you wouldn't have to change the overhead light. Cleaning my desk is one thing that always helps, but I'm a bit of a musty fusty messy bessy. I spilled hot liquid on myself today too. Boy are we talented!

Natasha said...

Small world!! Summer is always a bit unproductive for me as well, though I have intentions to be more productive this year. Love the illustration and the fact you bought a new lamp! That is my kind of thinking! :)

LeAlisha said...

Your work is always so beautiful and cheerful... i am so happy to see you here!! xox

Melisa said...

Can I borrow your list of ways to torture your printer, please? I'm glad I read your list. I've been trying to get DH to change the light bulb in the living room (12' ceiling!) for a couple months now. I think buying a new lamp would make sure bulb gets changed a lot quicker next time. Mwahahahaha!

Wow! I love what you do! :D
