MIA (for a month)

After posting so regularly many of you may wonder what happened to me. ( I often wonder that myself).  My husband I were hired to paint the bedroom and playroom of three little girls ages 4-9.  The bedroom room is huge- approximately 29′ by about 22′.  The playroom is also big but I never took the time to measure.  The girls’ playhouse cottage bunk bed has three full size mattresses in it to give you some idea of the scale. The ceiling is vaulted and goes up about 12-14 feet on the high side.  Well enough writing.  On to the pictures.

“Euphemism”

Sketch for the Day-

eu·phe·mism [yoo-fuh-miz-uhm] 
noun
1. the substitution of a mild, indirect, or vague expression for one thought to be offensive, harsh, or blunt.
2.the expression so substituted: “To pass away” is a euphemism for “to die.”

EX. Baby butterflies are born from a caterpillar blowing bubbles from a hooka…..

I decided to add to the list of Euphemisms for baby making- the stork, the cabbage patch, the birds and the bees, etc.  Add a fascination with the caterpillar from “Alice in Wonderland” and you have this sketch.  The caterpillar was the most magical character to me and the one that really made me realize Alice had really stepped through the looking glass.
