A glorious summer day in an idyllic semi-country town, where kids ride their bicycles down the middle of narrow streets.  Family and friends gathered on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate Katelyn’s tenth birthday.  I drew fourteen kids in one hour. Many of them were avid artists themselves and so I gave out samples of my drawing paper to them a talked a little about it.  They loved it!

I was called to draw at this party because last year I had drawn Katelyn and her mom at a family event in Paradise Park Assisted Living in Fox Lake. Two years ago I drew mom and grandma,  who  lives at Paradise Park.  Both drawings were now framed and Katelyn’s mom brought them out during this birthday party.  She said, she loved them!  Thank you, Amy!————————————–

It’s Grandparents’ Day at the Paradise Senior Living complex in Fox Lake.  This event is wonderful every year.  Basic ingredients:  DJ playing golden oldies, teen age beauty contest winners, an antique fire truck to climb into, a giant parrot, red-and-white checkered table cloths, white tents, good food and everybody’s favorite caricature artist. Well, that’s what it feels like.  People line up as soon as I get there.  Mutual admiration.  This is certainly one of my favorite annual events. Look at this couple cracking up when they first see the drawing!

Oh, and a crisp, sunny, early fall Sunday afternoon. Lucky every year!
