Redheads


There was a swap about redheads and these girls showed up. :)
What is it about cars that kids like to fall asleep in? I remember as a kid I was always sleeping while being driven in a car and actually still do if I'm tired. :) Look at his little mouth.

Fertility goddess and Kokopelli with some bad sheep

I was stumped when I got this Round Robin. AlornJR started it with the moon and the star, BigToeStudio added the goddess and then I finished it with kokopelli and red stripes. I googled fertility goddess to see what goes along with it and only kokopelli made sense. :) I think it came out fabulous none the less.
This Round Robin was started by angelmuz with the background, I added the white sheep and Miss M finished it with the black sheep and words. I love that Miss M put some humor in it. :)

I don't particularly like random background starters as I don't know what direction to take the cards and it's harder to draw on paint as the background colors seep through unless you use acrylics. But for this one, watercolor pencils worked just fine and I managed to find a simple design to put on it.

To remind you what Round Robin is. It's a set of 3 ATC cards that are worked on by 3 artists. The first player starts the set with a certain theme, the 2nd player adds to it and the 3rd player finishes it. Then each gets to keep one card for their collection.

And here is baby boy in his new high chair grabbing his spoon when daddy tries to feed him. :)

Zodiac Girls - Virgo, Libra, Scorpio

The 3rd swap in Zodiac Girls series that I'm hosting on AFA. They are Virgo, Libra and Scorpio. 
I had some trouble with mail arriving to Canada and among the 6 envelopes gone missing was one set of return Zodiac Girls - Pisces, Aries, Taurus. Because I felt bad for the player not receiving the fabulous returns, I painted another set of girls seen above. They luckily arrived safely but it took over 4 weeks. I still hope the missing envelopes appear somewhere, either at their destination or returned to me.
This is how he rolls. :) My mom took him for a stroll and he fell asleep. :)

Harley Quinn and a pig

This was for a swap I hosted a long time ago. :) We had to pick a person from one column and their pet from another. I chose Harley Quinn with her pet piglet.

Our baby boy just turned 6 months. :) Look at him loving the spoon.

Foxy Foxes

I've been seeing a lot of foxes on the internet, especially tumblr and I had this drawing spree of foxes a couple of months ago, so I kind of suspected that maybe red fox was my new spirit animal. I talked about my spirit animals before which are wolf and stag deer.
 
But a couple of days ago I realized the fox is not my spirit animal but my boy's. He had these new socks on that have a red fox on the front and when I mentioned it to my hubby he said there are foxes on the skis as well that he got from our neighbor that day because her kids have already outgrown them. 

I was never drawn to foxes before apart from meeting a couple of them crossing the road on two different occasions on my way home at night. This weird attraction started after my boy was born. I even painted a fox for him purely by accident. 

When he was only a couple of months old he had this fascination with my paintings on the wall. They seem to sooth him so my hubby said I need to paint one just for him. I wasn't going to paint a whimsical girl for him so after a while I thought of painting a fox which felt right to me. It needed to be colorful for him as my boy was and still is drawn to bright colors, especially orange. So I found an old background and I painted the fox. :)
He's growing so fast.
