Kids Art

"At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you've left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself. Your heart is rent." -Golda Meir

GRAND PARENTHOOD One of the joys of being grandparent is having grands kids who are very artistic and creative. This summer vacation, my husband I have the privilege of enjoying our grand kids. However, no matter how much we enjoy having them around, we needed a vacation away from them. We needed rest from work and babysitting. This week we will be flying to Seattle, Washington and then drive to Vancouver, Canada. On the week-end we will attend the wedding of a nephew, the major reason for our vacation. Our grand kids will be staying with their Aunt Ann who has a big family of twelve going on thirteen. I am sure they will not miss us. They will be busy playing with their cousins. We will be traveling for a week. We will be away from home, work and easel but like the grandmother above, we will be thinking of these grand kids we left behind. I will also be thinking of the numerous paintings I left behind.
SIMON AND SCULPTURE Last summer vacation Simon and her sister Audrey spent only two weeks with us. It was short but packed with creative adventures. One of the activities was sculpturing. This was free-form sculpture, creating anything thing that strike them.
COLORFUL ACTION FIGURES. Simon created these figures. Good job Simon!

AUDREY AND ARTISTIC ANATOMIES She loves to sculpt bodies. Who said only boys like Michelangelo could do sculptures?
ANATOMICAL ARTS BY AUDREY Don't take kids for granted. They have a creative minds and hands. Good works Audrey! Lovely color combination too.
