Art Harvest I

Donna-Jean once said that "a passion broken down into something small, done consistently, yields a harvest." I feel like Harmony Art Mom has helped us to do that this year, and even though it is not May or June, for the next couple of days I am going to share the harvest the kids have reaped because we have given some time to drawing.

I hope no one looks at these posts and feels guilty if they haven't been having their kids draw. There are quite a few things falling off the schedule at our house this term! But drawing has worked, and I really credit Harmony Art Mom's unfailing ideas and enthusiasm with helping us "keep the faith" where sketch time is concerned this year. (Thanks, Barb!)

I decided to share the pieces of each girl in separate posts, as a slight nod to CM's method of focusing on one artist at a time. ;o) These are Mariel's.

Thanks so much for the very kind words. I want to tell you how much I have appreciated your participation in Sketch Tuesday...every sketch means so much to me to see.

I know that Sketch Tuesday has been such a blessing to so many families and I try to remember that when I am struggling to come up with a new sketch idea...there are children that are sketching that wouldn't be if I hadn't stumbled upon the whole idea to begin with.

I am so grateful that you shared your family's success in sketching, I'm thinking it will only encourage more people to give it a try.

Looking forward to seeing your next sketches.
