Heaven or Las Vegas

We are on our way to Vegas! The kids had a mini vacation and we got a much welcomed good news so we are celebrating! Tonight, we are going to see Jeff Dunham, who Ken and I have seen years ago in Midland, Michigan. My favorite Dunham character is Walter, who is portrayed above. I painted this while in the car so my lines are wobbly but I'm happy with it.

We are also going to see Matt Franco who won last season's America's Got Talent.

Kids are really excited to see him as we are huge magic fans. I did this drawing  yesterday when we decided to go to Vegas.

Ken is taking me to see Cirque D'Soleil show, "O"! I'm so excited! We've been to Vegas several times and have seen other Cirque show but O is the one I've always wanted to see.

It's a 5 hour drive from Phoenix to Vegas. Kids are watching movies, Ken is listening to XM, and I'm drawing (though drawing while the car is going up and down the mountains was not fun). And I'm writing this blog post on my phone before I lose cell service. Isn't technology wonderful!

This morning, I saw one of my art friends participating in a challenge  to draw your selfie.. Do here is mine. I'm about to lose my cell service.. Will let you know about our trip! Have a great Friday!


  1. What a fun trip! Cirque du Soleil always looks amazing though I've not actually gone to a live show.

    That's pretty amazing you did that portrait while bumping along in the car! You've really captured your essence! And how fun that you have more than one portrait in this post!

    1. Thank you, Teresa! The challenge was fighting motion sickness! This was fun!
