Mint Chocolate Chip

Mint Chocolate Chip by Vanessa MacLeod

It sure has been a rainy June!  Sunday was spent indoors and my son and I baked some chocolate-chip cookies and listened to the Rushmore soundtrack.  The music got me thinking, so I tried to make this girl a bit like a character in a Wes Anderson movie.  I also felt she deserved some cute pajamas.  So I went with some minty green ones!

Afternoon Break

Afternoon Break by Vanessa MacLeod
After a long bout of rainy weather, the grass in my yard was about a foot high!  Today was a nice break, especially after last nights thunderstorm and tornado warning (!)  But grass cutting with my mower is no easy feat, I was ready to throw that son of a b**** down!  However, after a few very long breaths, I tackled it one more time and she started up!  Not only did it teach me perseverance but it also inspired this drawing.   I also feel I must pay my respects to the garden frogs who didn't escape the blades of the mower!

Modern Love

Modern Love by Vanessa MacLeod
Do you remember the first time a painting or illustration inspired you? Maybe it was some graffiti on the side of an old shopping mall or a doodle from a best friend.  Maybe it was the first time you hit pencil to paper and realized how awesome it felt to create something.  To all those artists out there, thank you!
