On Tuesday during class, we set up some Peeps as models and then drew and painted them on a Strathmore watercolor card.  Both students set their own up and painted them - choosing the same Peeps but in a different order (neither chose the Peeps that were bunnies). 

I didn't get a photo of the finished cards (they both left with cards ready to send to someone), but did get the start-up of each.

This one belongs to Joy.  She made a green-yellow background around the Peeps before painting each of them.

This one belongs to Linda.  She did a pale wash of yellow behind her Peeps before painting them and putting in Happy Easter in red.

I hope the recipients of these cards are glad to get hand painted Easter cards this year :)

Me, I still haven't done my own!  But will - those Peeps are sitting in a plastic bag, waiting for me to set them out and paint them.  I did compose another set-up, using some cut out eggs from an old acrylic painting that failed...

Now wait just a minute! In the first two pics, there were three Peeps. In your pic at the bottom, only two remain. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Where did that third Peep go I ask?

Dear Rhonda - E.M. has an excellent question there - wondering the same thing too?? Looks like your students did an excellent job with their Easter cards. Hope you have a super day. Hugs!

I think there are 5 in a box?

Yes, the first two pics were the student set-ups, Elizabeth. I did not eat one! ha ha But I would be more tempted to eat one of the stale ones...maybe I will since I have so many left??

Debbie, see my answer to Elizabeth, I honestly did not eat that peep!! ha ha

In the boxes we have here, Jennifer Rose, we have either a box of 15 or more bunnies, and for the chicks of all colors, there were 10 - 2 rows of 5 in the box. So I have 30 chicks and 15 bunnies, half in bags for Sweetie to eat and half out getting stale (they can be really stale/rock hard and still make good models - I wonder if I could even spray seal them??)
