One of the joys of my week is Art Day every Sunday at our house. My sister Shannon and I spend a few hours at the kitchen table, exploring, creating and having a wonderful time. This week was extra special because my sister Suzie is in visiting from Vancouver and we were able to all create together!
All three of us are taking Year of the Spark with Carla Sonheim & Lynn Whipple. We got out all of our supplies and dove into Packing Tape 101, a lesson from Carla.
I found it surprisingly fun to paint on packing tape!
Perhaps the greatest delight of the day was seeing how everyone’s personal style came out in their creations. Here’s Shannon’s, which includes this awesome cosmic dog on the right!
Suzie used food as her inspiration and came up with these beauties. I love the way the one on the left captures her sense of cute and street at the same time!
And I think I must have been inspired by my recent visit to the Emily Carr exhibit! She and I share a love of trees.
The upcoming Full Strawberry Moon is all about delight. Clearly we’re feeling her influence already!
