Girl in a BearCat suit

I just came back from the post office, and Jennifer's sketchbook is now on its way to Australia. With my little additions. These are not really inline with the "pretend" theme, with the exception of the girl in the bear/lion/tiger suit.

Hopefully there's enough blank space and textured paper to inspire others to multi-layer other details in.

I feel better not leaving a sketchbook behind as I take my own sketchbook to Paris for a week for a quick getaway, the excuse being that my grandmother is turning 103 (one hundred and three!!!) this weekend, and that seems like a good enough reason.

Would anybody like to join them for a game of hide and seek in the shrubs?



I may paint one more picture in O's book before I pass it onto Jan. I hope you don't mind Oli, I'm having too much fun with your book. Does anybody call you Oli?

Work in progress: Olivier’s book

Since Olivier's book has watercolour pages, I've decided to bring out my watercolours for his moly. It's been awhile since I've painted.

While flipping through his book for ideas, I kept coming back to the lady with the look alike bear ears. So Oli....I give you....a bear, some leaves and flowers, and a cat sticking out of this shrubbery madness!


I've started adding colours...will post more pictures when I'm finished.
