Grandkids again



I got to the B&B last night before dark!! HORRAY! So I sat down to sketch. Not feeling overly tired, I attempted my weekly grandchild portrait. The one of Nick reading I'm pretty pleased with -- it 'looks' more like him than the one of Emily and Charles.

Nonetheless, these simple images are so precious to me! I LOVE to read as does my grandchildren's father. Their mom reads to them all the time, so to see Emily and Nick enjoying books just thrills me! And having these sketches of the grands memorializing such a quiet moment with their focus on books just makes me smile!

I guess you know Lin, your grands are becoming famous! This is so sweet. My love for reading has also passed down the line to my kids and all the grands.

Lin, THIS is why the whole world should be drawing the things around them that they love! Your joy comes though in your writing and drawing -- It is perfect!

Special indeed! I just love both of them, but particularly the one of Charles and Nick. Your portraits are really coming ahead Lin. These are great!

I love the one of Nick reading. It's beautifully drawn and such a sweet image. One of my favorite pictures of my oldest son is him naked and sitting on a potty seat reading a book. He loved to read as a little one, and I always loved to read to my kids.
