THEATER - Illustration Friday

Upon learning the Illustration Friday topic I was immediately excited. I started envisioning ladies in waiting, dramatic hair-dos and poofy dresses, like the art that Sandra Evertson creates. Maybe a Hamlet or Henry the VIIIth play. The teen thought of Phantom of the Opera and a masked ball. The little one designed a picture with the 'happy/sad faces' she associates with the theater. I love our interpretations.

All art is done with either drawing pencils or charcoal and an addition of Koh-I-Nor woodless pencils.

Theater (by the little one):

Madamoiselle du Paon (by the teen):

All The World is a Stage (by me):

Today is one of the most beautiful spring days yet. We couldn't keep ourselves from walking out the door the moment we woke up. We ate breakfast with the birds, drew art to the sound of the wind blowing through the trees and did as much schoolwork as we could stand while the sunshine warmed our hearts and bodies. I am looking forward to more spring days!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
