Chuchy



"Chuchy" 20"x14" Watercolor

M. refers to himself as "Chuchy" which is such a cute and totally him thing! He is so beautiful and mischievous and full of boy energy! I hear he's got a great ear for music and it doesn't surprise me, he has that rare sense of creative energy around him. I feel like he's another one of my ever growing clan of kids, it will be a joy to watch him grow. On this particular day his hair was somewhat tame which turned out to be a good thing for me painting wise! I can't wait to do another painting of him!

Here's a close up

This Little Piggy




"This Little Piggy Went To Market" (again) 8"x10" Watercolor


I love my little molcajetes. . . they are one of my fondest memories of my Grandma. I don't know why but I would ask her every single day "what is that and what is it for?" and she would tell me every single time I asked without getting annoyed (that I know of) "it's for making things!"

I've been working on some portraits and can't wait to show you, in the mean time, I painted this "little" one so I could post something new. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed hearing my granny in the wind.
