I have interpreted this week’s Photo Challenge: Awakening the best way I know how by sharing the joy of spending time in the studio last weekend with my beautiful, creative granddaughter who shows us all so perfectly how a box of paints, a few brushes, paper and a little water can awaken the artist in all of us.
“What’s your favourite place near or far,” we are asked for this week’s Photo Challenge.
Not surprisingly here are two of mine.
Did you know that today is World Read Aloud Day.
No more precious moments than reading aloud to our two beloved granddaughters
“Evoke the excitement of entering a new year with a photo that shows growth.”
I can’t think of anything more perfect with which to respond to this first photo challenge of the year from Jen than these two photos of our beautiful granddaughter exactly one year apart enjoying Santa’s gifts on Xmas day.
Xmas Day 2016
Xmas Day 2017
Growth was also seen in our family in 2017 as we celebrated the birth of our second beautiful granddaughter in May who like her cousin gives her parents and grandparents nothing but pure joy.
Wishing everyone such joy and happiness in the year ahead.
my new favourite of the year
This week’s finial photo challenge of the year asks us…
“To celebrate the end of the year, share the most meaningful photo you’ve taken in 2017.”
Without a doubt this was one of my favourite and most meaningful photos of the year,
which I posted for International Women’s Day last March.
Take a look back at the UN Women’s web site and use this opportunity to read again their statement “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”.
…from two of the luckiest grandparents in the world ❤️
For this week’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post one of my happiest corners this past week was the corner of my work table in the studio where the real artist in the family, in less than an hour, gave me a lesson in impressionism, abstract expressionism and action painting.
Oh, what joy!
With thanks to my daughter for the photo of my beautiful granddaughter and me.
