On way home by redsama On way home by redsama
Kids are always like that - Stopping for nothing special on their way home..



Did you do the same when you was a kid? It used to take me and my friend twice more than the time we needed to walk home from school haha :D

Another watercoloring on sketch paper. Recently, I'm really keen on this method.
Still an old sketch/lineart I drew about 1 year and a half ago and I finally found some time to color it yesterday :D But this time, I'm not satisfied with the result. I somehow disappointed myself :(

*Duration:

Your intro line is totally wrong.

Kids have the gift to make the ordinary, special, finding beauty and joy in what we adults have long ago blinded ourselves to. Maybe if we could act a little more childish then perhaps we would have the right to their joy."

is what it really should say.

Oh yes, you really showed me where I was wrong! Kids are admirable that way. That's why we adults always wanna come back to be a child ^^

That is why children shall always be the purest form of real entertainment. When the Queen came to Alberta she went to church in the town of Jasper. When she came out a little boy crawled across her path chasing after a beetle. The queen was looking at him with a smile on her face and I looked at her and realized that that was probably the first genuine smile she made on the entire trip.

Such a nice story :heart:
I have to say that until now, childhood is the best time of my life and I bet most people think the same way. Now as a (kinda) adult, I always wonder why we laughed that much when we was young but I also wonder why now we can't laugh for nothing like that again. Such a sad story for everyone.

Yes, used to take a so-called "short-cut" on a grass field with a friend and end up spending the whole afternoon flying kites and sleeping. :la:
