Back-to- School Night

My son's school had back-to-school night and what a long night it was!
 We got home at 9:30PM, those poor teachers must be so tired today!
My son, Joe's artwork on the wall:
Joe had me make one as well.
The first line: What you are or want to become
Second line: two adjective describing yourself
Third line: three 'ing' words that describe you
Fourth line: a four word sentence
Fifth line: your name
My son had a poster assignment that turned out so well!
I try so hard to keep my hands off his projects like this because,
 oh boy, I can really take over. I loved this type of stuff as a kid!
The only help I gave was suggesting the circles of different yellows,
other than that he did it all! I'm so proud of him:)
 I have been trying to squeeze some painting here and there
this week.
I have swap art that I have to finish tonight
because it has to be postmarked for tomorrow.

Some watercolors that I'm fiddling with in my sketchbook
left page, close up
 Detail of an abstract painting.
These are the parts of it I like. 
Hope everyone is having a good week. It's Thursday, we're almost there!
Take care,

I know what you mean about needing to tell yourself to back away from the artsy school projects....haha!

I think the assignment looks so professional!
Your journal play and poster are wonderful....I love your use of color :)
