Norm's Notes 29.

Today  I have mostly been painting my masterpiece.

Using my new water colour pencils.

Getting there.

Nearly finished.
What do you think ?

XOXO Norm.

Fine Print.

Norm used  High Hopes Rubber Stamps 'Winter Fun Monkey' M-143  as his image to paint..


  1. I think you are so talented, Norm! I wish I could use pencils when they are new like you can. I have to wait until they are just stublets or elks I can't hold 'em. Love, Hammy

  2. Wow, that's a real masterpiece Norm. Have you made it for Mrs A?

  3. Wow, you are a so talented Monkey!! And the pencil behind your ear make you so professional! :D

  4. Norm, you have so many talents. You really have the hang of those pencils and your picture is lovely. I must say you look jaunty in your straw hat. Please tell Sammy I like her flower barretts.

  5. Doing a great job there Norm. Is Sammy helping choose the colours for you?

  6. Norm you are a true artist, Just as good as Mrs A's Daughter, now you just need to teach Sammy and you can start running some classes lol

  8. Well you crafty Monkey, using Mrs A's new pencils, hope Mrs A has learnt a thing or two on using watercolour pencils.
    Go to the top of the class.

  12. Hi Norm and Sammy,
    I see Mrs A took my advice and lent you some of her craft stash.
    You have made a super job of that art work.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  13. Who knew Norm was this artistic? Delightful scenes, love the sunshine and comraderie, and it's obvious they are enjoying the garden! TFS &Hugs (PS also admire Norm's art work too).

  14. Normal that's gorgeous! Love your dappy shirt too! Sammy looks like she's enjoying watching you colour!

  16. Norm, you are always so busy. I've seen a few watercolor challenges you might want to enter. (You also might want to put those pencils back where you found them before you are found out!)

  17. Oh Norm your watercolouring is amazing, I think I need you to give me some lessons.
    Can't wait to see the finished painting.
    Good that you can enjoy your hobby outside in the sunshine.

    Hugs Erika. x

  18. Absolutely fantastic Norm, you are so very talented. Lovely colouring, and I must say you really look the part siting there at your easel with your pencil behind your ear, Kate x

  19. Another artist in the family...Amazing work...Now if you now what I now then you won't be painting for a long while ...hint....don't cut the hedge!!! xx
