Lil Sonny Sky's book of the week...


I think I'm a little obsessed with my discovery of the totally fabulous illustrator Brian Wildsmith, 
( I found him via this post on fab Roddy and Ginger )
He is inspirational eye-candy for my artistic soul!! ( Wow, that was a bit good for me for 10 o'clock on a Tuesday morning!!.. it's because the kids have gone to Gran & Grandads for the day so I can actually construct a sentence without being interrupted!)

Anyways...
This gorgeous book 'Brian Wildsmith 123'
( I've put in 'bookshelf lovelies' in the side bar along with a few other beautiful Brian Wild Smith books)

inspired a morning of painting yesterday for Lil Sonny Sky...











Sky's masterpiece,



Son's masterpiece,




and Lil's masterpiece!


even the mess made was lovely,


Sonny love's to read this learning to read book by Brian Wildsmith, I love the cover,


and he love's the 'Hare and the tortoise' in this Fables' book along with the 'Lion and the mouse', and I love reading it to him as I get to study the beautiful art work.



Here's Brian Wildsmith's website... he has a museum in Japan!
and here is a google images search just for more of that eye-candy, 
hope you're as inspired as I am!

  6. I agree ! Such lucky children to have such an inspiring mum ! They are very talented too! I wish I did more artwork when I was young, but I guess it is never too late to catch up. I like the fact that you are naming your art after your lovely children. How sweet !
