I had a blast hanging out with my mom today. She is 71 and I challenge anyone to just TRY to keep up with her, especially when shopping! The local Kmart is closing in another month, so we spent 2 hours picking through there today. After all that time, with her reward points, Mom spent $1.74 on 2 key chains and 6 lollipops! I, on the other hand, found much more since I had not been in there in ages. I think my favorite find was a new pair of bright neon aqua blue and pink tennis shoes for $5.
When we finally made our way back to her house this afternoon, she and Dad cut the grass and I set up my art travel kit on a table on the carport to work on today’s painting. I had no clue who would show up on my canvas (watercolor paper) today, but as I began sketching her hair, the little curl appeared on her cheek. As I worked on adding color and detail, she informed me that her name is Vera and she has some stories to tell!
I’m already excited about seeing who wants to appear on my canvas tomorrow!
