Oh the endless (mini) dramas of spilt milk...(or other liquids). These deserve to feature in a splash of paint, and a dash of words. A frequent scene when I had a household of young children.

Illustrated Haiku – Haiga, Process Pics, and Links to Blog/Book Publishing Sites
*I draw and paint with my finger on the screen, rather than use a stylus. This drawing began as a quick sketch using a black "inktense" pencil. With a wet brush, I swished over it - turning it into lovely inky wash. There's a photo here, of a tiny print version of this drawing; taken from... Continue Reading →
