Colin's Magic Wand

EDM has opened my eyes to so much simple beauty that went relatively unnoticed through my busy life as a wife, mother and full time career woman. Yesterday morning as I walked with my daughter and my adorable grandson Colin (age 1 1/2) I enjoyed the company, the exercise, the crisp air and sunshine. Colin needed a stick to orchestrate our walk and he seemed to direct my eye to "finds" along the sidewalk. A most enjoyable walk !

I love all of your color mixing and shading. So sorry we won't be seeing you next week. Keep in touch and we'll plan a day later this Fall.

Great page! I just sketched a maple seed or "helicopters" as we called them as kids, at my sister's last week. I love the way you handled the magic stick. Lovely!

This is a beautiful page, and beautifully laid out; it's why we sketch. This will always bring back that walk with Colin. Congratulations!
