All winter long, Julia and I have been waiting to do art on the porch again. We both love it. Today was the day! Here's our spot:
Lisa's blog. A while back, she shared some "doodling" videos that I thought were so cool, so Julia and I started with that. Here's the video I watched:

I'd taken a tomato and an apple on the porch too, so Julia decided to try her hand at the tomato. I'd told her a little about how to achieve the "light" effect on the rounded parts of fruit. Here's how it went for her.
