Hello Friday

I love to take part in challenges but the only issue is lack of time. Anyways this week I managed to do this mixed media page on some whimsical houses.
"Home is a starting place for Love and Dreams."
I'm linking this page to Mix it Monthly and Art Journal Journey where the theme for this month is Home

 Day-3 from my Daily Sketches series. I also did this cone flower painting on book page as part of the Week-24 DLP Challenge.

 Day-4 A quick sketch of my 3 year old's  teddy bear. 

Day-5 I never got the time to add color to this.

 A water color painting of the White Spotted Puffer fish for this month's sketchbook challenge, Water Life

Hooded Oriole with my Koi water colors

That is it for this week. One more day and then the summer holidays start for my first grader. June is almost over and why do I get the feeling that Summer is shorter than winter!  
Linking my page to PPFArt Journal Everyday and SundaySketches 
Wishing you all a peaceful and happy week
