My sister, Dava, has been taking art lessons for a while and she has gotten pretty good at it. She has even sketched a couple of my kids.
Here we have my youngest. She loves the slouchy hats, but doesn’t wear them often. This was knitted by me in a burnt orange.
And this is what Dava sketched from the photo above. :)
Joanna also loves the hats. All kinds of hats. This lovely blue/striped hat was calling her name and Joanna had to try it on.
And this is what Dava sketched from this picture.
After this I decided we needed to purchase the hat for Joanna and then we had another photo shoot. It is fun to get a little goofy once in a while.
Below is a watercolor of my two sisters and me.
I love this painting. Three sisters. Each sister has her initial somewhere on her. The conversation about this picture, between the three of us, went like this:
Leasa: Michelle, did you get the painting of us yet?
Me: Yes, I really like it!
Leasa: Did you notice how wide Dava painted my butt?
Me: Yes! It was hard to miss.
Dava: I paints ’em as I sees ’em.
Dava has painted many fun things, like door cabinets, tables, and a sink counter. You can check out a few of her paintings on her Facebook Page DesignsbyDava. I am hoping she will add more of her work.
Recently she enter one of her pieces in an Art Show and won third prize!
I am proud of her. Way to go Dava!
I am pretty sure she gets her talent from me. Just sayin’….
