Beach Visit With Annabelle

We just spent several days in Southampton with our youngest grandchild, Annabelle.  Our other 4 grandchildren live in Manhattan and spend lots of time with us.  Annabelle needs to figure out who we are and reestablish trust with each visit.  These are the first 3 journal pages from our visit.

When we arrived the pink hydrangeas at the house were finally in bloom and we brought one flower in to brighten an otherwise rainy Sunday.


This is Annabelle, on arrival in Southampton, sitting so nicely next to the pink hydrangea.  The circle to the left of the picture is one of the bubbles being blown as she plays with her cousins.


The following day Annabelle played with her cousin Sydney's flip-flops and I decided that these may be the only butterflies that I would see all week.  So this is my entry for EDM Challenge #235 - Draw a butterfly.


We had beautiful sunny days and after a morning walk on the neach with Annabelle, we took her to the village park and children's playground.  Wen we arrived these 4 "friends" were clustered together on the dock and I was able to rapidly sketch them before they swam off.




Annabelle is a doll and I love your butterfly sketch! Very clever!

Annabelle is the prettiest baby! What a joy to have in your life! Your
drawing for EDM 235 works for me! Lovely light hand you have for
watercolors. Thanks for sharing your artwork with the group.
Best wishes,

Annabelle is a cutie! Great sketch of the flip flops (they really are fun to draw), and as always I enjoy your bird sketches.

Apart from Annabelle, I particularly love your ducks, Shirley - all your birds, but personal experience recently with ducks tells me they just don't stand still long enough!

Annabelle is adorable, and your sketches are lovely - so light and airy. I like your style very much. nancy

How Adorable!!!!! What fun you must have had - and the flip flop butterflies make a perfect memory/EDM entry!

Love the ducks. What fun!

I've lost out on much lately, not being around...Isn't she a cutie...she is a little hydrangea herself!! I envy you your grandchildren Shirley...can't wait for mine one day! and I love your flip flops

I think you 'take' on EDM 235 (butterfly) is great. You've got that very subtle use of colour down to a fine art... no pun intended!

First chance I have had to visit your blog. Not enough time to read all of it, but thumbed through. What fun--especially since I got to watch you do some of the drawings when with you last Fall...Annabelle is darling. Is she sporting Jason's childhood "do" in this picture? Jackie
