Among all the school open houses I’ve been to, this one was the least favorite of mine. But I think it was Michelle’s favorite because she proved that she’s braver than me. She gets the bragging right. Fine. Way back in high school, we didn’t do any dissection. And I’m forever grateful to my science teacher. It was all theoretical or else, I won’t do it. I know, I was born not to be a science major. Or I could dissect any animal except snakes and worms. Good job Michelle! You don’t need your mom’s help here. You’re very independent.
Instruction: Imagine an elephant and a mouse jumping on a trampoline. Considering Newton’s Law, how will you imagine this to look like? Draw me an incredible picture below.
At the end of every school year, I save photos of my favorite papers/schoolwork of my kids. This one was Michelle’s. Every time I see it, it cracks me up. She’s really a good illustrator. Look how scared the mouse is while holding a cheese. And the young elephant is looking prim and proper. Weee!
Created in May of 2011, this was my first ever portrait and one of the best any day gift I’ve received. One day, Michelle was intently looking at me while I was doing house chores. I never paid attention to what she was doing at that moment. After a few minutes of repeatedly looking at me, she gave me this portrait she drew. Sweet!
Love, love flowers specially those that have unique characteristics. My painting was inspired by the colorful, pretty, and diverse campanulas or bellflowers we always see during spring hikes.
“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

It’s citrus season! Got some from friends who harvested their trees the other day. I chose the ones with leaves cuz I’m making them my models. Pears & apples are from Sprouts. I’m not supposed to paint fruits today but I got carried away. I don’t want my models to wait and wither their leaves so here’s to maximizing the fruits!
