Happy Fourth of July everyone! I am a bit exhausted from the day have opted out of seeing fireworks this evening.
As promised, here are some more pictures from Colonial Days. Firstly, here is another picture from Thursday. It is me and my good friend Manelle in our stylin' Colonial Costumes. Check out her blog to see what she did! Doesn't she look like she could be in a Vermeer painting?
Here I am today in my not so well fitting fatty costume. This time I decided to do a drawing of Paul Revere's Midnight Ride. That cute little girl hanging out by me is my little one!
This drawing was a bit more of an ambitious undertaking, and because it has been such an exhausting week, I didn't care as much about this one and just kind of wanted to get it over with. The frustrating thing about working with chalk on asphalt is: 1. It's a black surface which is quite a bit different than the white surface I am used to working on. 2. It's a bit rough! 3. You get quite sore and exhausted from crouching on the ground. and 4. It's frustrating to not have the colors that you would really like to work with. But all that said, it was a fun experience and a great holiday!
