C & C always welcomed and encouraged.
Kim, Thanks for hosting this month. I wish I could have done more but got sidetracked by Halloween!
Jen C & C's always welcome
My rushed attempt to finish on time. This is the view from my office of a one room school house. It is known as The Union School because children from two townships went there. My husband attended this school. He said there were three students in his grade, one became an accountant, one a lawyer and one a medical doctor(sort of unusual). His comment, it was really hard to get the highest mark in the class. We all have fun memories of the one room schools with neighbouring schools attending for sports, ball games and Christmas concerts, our travelling music teacher that went from school to school, red cross on Fridays and helping the smaller grades with reading and spelling. We had a wood box stove in the center at the back and you could take soup in a jar and put it in a dish of water that was on the stove and hot soup for lunch. Lots of memories. This is c/p 9x12" 90lb Heavyweight Vellum Drawing.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Kim, thank you so much for hosting September's challenge. Great theme and photo's, with lots of wonderful art created.
Thanks Kim for supplying the ref. photos for the month of September.
I agree with Sam that photography is an Art form but was more than a little surprised to find Joyce's family inspired 'photos uploaded as Challenge art work even if they did fit the theme.
I have obviously mis-understood the term All Media but still think that any 'photos other than those to be used for reference should be in Chatter.

My photos have cause more than I wanted from this challenge.
The pictures were taken with the idea of showing the excitment of a little girls first day of school. Showing a family member was a plus because it was her first day of school. The pictures was done to remind us all of our first day of school and how our parents and us took pictures of our children on first days of school and how excited we were. The pictures was not to show you my granddaught or granddson, you may delete the pictures off the challenge. Joyce
All C & C's always welcome
I think the subject of the photos has been covered and its time to let sleeping dogs lie. Bringing up petty differences accomplish nothing. Just look at our government.
C and C always welcomed
I agree with Geri!
Just keep on drawing, painting having fun.
And, Thank you Kim´for hosting. This was an other fun month.
This is my last post this month.
It's a small CP on black paper. CP and paper had bad quality.
It's called: I be off to school in just a M-i-n-u-t-e!
C&C always welcome
Claudia, it looks like we both had to get one last piece done before the month was over. I love this one, your title is right on. This must be a boy, I think most boys would like to be doing something else instead of school. I like the effect the black paper had for the ripples in the water.
Bonnie, yes you 're right, it's a boy and I Know what I'm talking about.
We're doing these homework sessions everyday and the boys always come up with lots of excuses.
At least that gives me time to scribble.
Sorry, I missed your schoolhouse CP. It 's very well done and I love the story.
Bonnie, this is such a lovely drawing of the one-room schoolhouse as seen from your window - the roof is so true to the way those roofs appear. The fact that you showed only what you could see gives it a very interesting aspect, and I love what you told about your memories and your husband's.
Claudia, as the mother of a boy, I agree with you 100%! This is a charming piece and I love the ripples in the water and paving stones and the rain gear he's wearing.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you Claudia and Alex for your comments.
Shameer ~ I'm glad you got to do a painting this month and it is lovely! The colors and shapes of the clouds are so interesting!~
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Alex ~ This is a great portrait of the "textile mill girl". Using the water-soluble pencil was a success. You did a fine fob on her hair especially!
