Watercolor on Aquabord, 5 x 7″
Updated on May 19, 2014
I thought I would show you a bit of my process for this post.
I had my kids set up the legos (this time it was Freddie, my 9 year old, who did this one), posing them how they want them. I then take out my trusty iPhone (it actually shoots pretty decent photos) and take a few candid shots of the little dudes doing their thing. In this case, said Alien is looking for a much needed hug from his human compadre… but the human looks quite taken aback at this, or should I say, scared sh**less… Maybe the phrase “Oh My GOSH don’t touch ME you FREAKAZOID” comes to mind or maybe “Gross! Do you smell something? Did you wear deodorant?!” Or maybe “I don’t wanna hug, I am trying to watch THE GAME, Greenish dude, back OFF!!!” Oh, so many play on words could be inserted here by using the expression on his face… (my personal fave, when I asked Maarten, my other child, what he was saying, he said “I am so scared, I pooped my pants!” *sigh*, that’s 9 year old boys for ya.)
I will still offer a print of the painting to the 5th commenter!!
