We are having a very artful Summer. Yesterday I picked up a few drawing books at the library to share with Gabriel, an artist with real passion. He immediately cajoled/guilted me into dropping everything and sitting right down and drawing. It is not easy to do when there is chaos all around, but if you can, it's bliss. Thank you Gabe.
Last week we discovered Sharpie Art. I refurbished an old mirror frame with paint and a sharpie pen. How fun! Who knew. Gabe found an old canvas and had his brother spray paint that so he could do sharpie art too. Soon nearly everyone got involved with his "work of art", friends and family alike.
We are also enjoying the show Work of Art on Bravo this Summer, check it out if you can, although not all episodes are suitable for nine year olds. :)
Have a good one, it's Wordless Wednesday and I've said too much.
