When I Was A Stupid Kid - Sibling Rivalry

When I Was A Stupid Kid, I was on the dishing end of a sibling rivalry. On the receiving end was my unassuming, OH-SO-CUTE, Little Miss Perfect, younger sister and roommate, Bonbon (Derived from her name Ebony. E-BON-y). Look at how cute she is.
She was SOOOOOOOOOO cute, that teenaged girls would AWWW and SQUEEEE at how CUTE she was. Seriously, I kid you not. She was just SO CUTE! Look at them big ol' eyes. I tell you, when I was a kid, I found all the gushing quite disgusting!!
In addition to being SOOOOOOOOO CUTE physically, Bonbon, was....

As her name suggests, OH SO SWEET.

AND, to make matters WORSE, while I was an academic lump of coal,

Bonbon was an academic DIAMOND.

The most infuriating thing was that all this was all-natural. She didn't do these things to suck up to parents, or to make me look bad. All this cuteness, this sweetness, this smartness, was ALL NATURAL. No plastic!! She always wanted people to be happy...
... even if you were mean to her!!

And that's how I acted like an jackass, When I Was A Stupid Kid, because disliking Bonbon, is like disliking a puppy or a duckling. What jackass doesn't like puppies or ducklings? You know what I mean!?!

ps. Bonbon grew up just as sweet and cute. If you're a person that gets her angry, you must REALLY be a d-bag.

Watercolor Sketchbook - Dog Park!

I wanted to spoil my dogs today so we went to the dog park!!! Unfortunately the dogs kept splashing on my sketchbook so I stopped painting and finished at home. So this isn't completely an on-the-spot painting. :)

The dog to the left is Gracie, the brown dog is my other dog Honker, and the man in white is my hubby :)

Hope you like my painting
Until next time!

Watercolor - "Turtle Watching"

Went to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center today to do some painting. The pond at the entrance entices an audience with it's collection of cute little turtles. Unfortunately, from where I was painting, I couldn't see any, so don't try to find any turtles in my painting :)
