Elementary school

Things I love about working at a school:

  • children are amazingly funny
  • explaining something to a 1st grader, and feeling like you're actually making a difference
  • art time - watching how salt interacts with watercolors
  • recess
  • making pizzas in class (yum!)

Things I really don't like so much about working at a school:
  • it's like being in a petri dish
  • I have to get up early in the morning
  • the germs - seriously!! Sometimes I feel like my immune system is improved by being around the kids so much, but then a horrible bug will get me, I'll have to take a day off work, and I'll spend the whole weekend hoping I'll be capable of waking up at 5.45 on Monday morning.

Mostly I love it, though :)

New painting

Here's a sneak peek of something I've been working on - I just finished the ink work, and still have to do the watercolors (when I have time!) On the left is the original sketch, and on the right is the initial lines on the final paper, with the actual line work/filling in just started.

Here are a few out of a series of charcoal drawings I did recently. There are 13 in all, and are for sale on my Etsy shop - only $15 each!!! Which is actually quite a good deal for original pieces.

Anyway, here are a few of the images:
