At the sink

At the Sink
The little helper. My children occasionally helped when they were little, as they grew older not so much....
But the fascination with all the water and bubbles was joyful if short lived :)

Inspiration the sink illustration friday challenge. A little paint party friday, artists in blogland, Sunday Sketches and Creative Everyday

Christmas is almost here, programs are finished at the Library. Puppet plays survived :) Holidays almost ready to begin, a year to reflect on.

Very sweet illustration! We both chose the same subject, washing dishes, for IF.

So cute...unfortunately as they grew up they don't think washing up is fun anymore...thank goodness for the dishwasher... :)

Beautiful painting! When I get mine to help with that particular chore we still need to have the mop and bucket handy:)

Beautiful painting. Is it just girls or do little boys like to make bubbles too:)?

What a lovely little helper! I always hated having to help with the washing up though... I preferred to make the mess (some things never change!!)

This is so sweet, and you captured it perfectly.

It's true, I could keep my son occupied with a few cups and sink full of bubbles for hours.

Now this painting reminds me of me when my Grandma used to put a chair in front of the sink so that I could help her wash dishes. First the plates, then the cups...etc.Beautiful soft painting. Ah memories, thank you for igniting precious memories. Happy Holidays to you.

Very nicely conceived and executed. I'm glad I found your work on Illustration Friday.

Thank you for your great comments, curious how children and dishes can be an ongoing battle. I am wondering how much help I will get tomorrow :)

Beautiful! In fact, all of your children sketches are a pleasure to look at!
