Fruit and Flowers, Mice and Me!

Fruit and Flowers:

I colored in the sketch that I showed you here.  I mostly used colored pencils, watercolor pencils and watercolor paints.

A Mouse:
My 5th/6th graders are painting animals and my go-to demo is always a mouse or hamster.  I love cute rodents.  The kids are always astounded when I show them how to make furry texture with a fan brush!  So fun.  Do you have go-to images you use when demonstrating techniques?

Here I am at 33 weeks pregnant!  Time is ticking away.  Hopefully the sooner the better!  I’m going on maternity leave starting when our Spring Break starts, which is the third week in April.  I probably will have the baby sometime that week (I know I will be induced during that week most likely.)  Then, I will be off for the rest of the school year (6 weeks until summer break).  It will be nice to have the whole summer to get adjusted to a new baby and routine.  I still managed to blog when I had my first daughter, during naptimes.. well, she would only sleep on my lap in a sling, but I still had some time.  I’m hoping I will have time to blog when I’m off of work… I have lots of pictures to show you of projects we’ve done this year at school.
