We're sharing our art! Kezzie (dear blogging friend) is having an Art-Sharing Party today. Click over and see all the bloggers who are sharing the art that they have in their homes.
I share a lot of my watercolors here, but today I want to share someone else's art. My daughter is an amazing artist, a true artist. She has sketched since she was a toddler. I'll share a few of her little pieces I still have stuck around the house from before she was old enough to insist on her own style. She's nearly finished college and does complicated art now, but these old pieces are still some of my favorites.
This first little one was painted when she was small, maybe 1st or 2nd grade. And yes -- she almost always paints out of her head. At this age, I knew she had a gift.
Acrylic on canvas. Again, out of her head -- the colors, and textures.
She quickly acquired a gift for lines, perspective, geometrical shapes.
This last piece is a painting (I think an oil) of my mother when she was in her late teens. I don't know who the artist is.
That's my little dab of art sharing. I hope you enjoyed it. My walls are covered with art from various friends, usually friends of my mother, who attracted artistic friends like a magnet. Their beautiful artwork, gifted to her, is dribbling its way into the homes of her children and grandchildren as the years pass. We are thankful! But more than anyone else's art, I love the art of my daughter and my brother.
