Drawing Trumpets for Char to Paint

We had a long work day that at the end of I felt exhausted and also unsuccessful. Generally Saturday I feel beat up after working all Friday. Friday night and Saturday but with a sense of accomplishment. We both needed some rest. It felt good to get home and relax but I didn’t have a ton of energy for art.

Char has a toy trumpet he likes to blow so loudly. Ugh. He was blowing the hell out of it and as much as I didn’t want to hear it I was letting him have his joy. I started painting it with rainbows coming out and he thought that was fun so he ordered me to draw him one he could paint with hearts and music notes. We made several. All of mine were unsuccessful but I love how he painted this one I drew for him.


David was on the road. He had to fly to the snow of Colorado. Horrible trip but he was keeping a good attitude when I talked to him. The strangest meet up happened. One of my best friends from high school here in Ohio ended up being close to the venue he was playing in Colorado. It really was sweet and surreal when this photo came through of them after the show.
