Art - A Movement In Time And Space
Moving through time and space in our own way
The girls have really gotten into drawing and coloring lately. So much so, it is the one thing I can always suggest that they will willingly turn the tv off for! Some recent pieces caught my eye, so I thought I'd share them here. :-)

A Beautiful Garden

A Beautiful Garden

"Once upon a time, there was [sic] three horses. They were in a beautiful garden and it was nighttime and they were going to sleep there. And then they were eating the grass when it was morningtime. Then they saw some flowers and a big tree. THE END."

Maya has really gotten into drawing, making pictures, coloring and story telling. She did this one on November 14, 2005. I just love the story she dictated to me to go along with this picture.

Nadia's Snowman

Nadia's Snowman

Nadia did this drawing while we were waiting for Maya at her art class. Nadia saw some other kids drawing snowmen and drew one too. She did this one on November 15, 2005

You know what I love most about pictures drawn by kids? The blissful ignorance of proportion *heh heh* .. all my drawings as a kid had animals being as tall as trees (in fact, my flowers were as tall as houses); it didn't hit me for quite a while that things don't really look that way outside the window. But drawing and coloring were always so much fun!! :)

These picture postings are much appreciated. :)

I know! I love how her "big tree" is only slightly bigger than the horses and it touches the sky.

Glad you enjoyed the post. :-)

I was going to say that I adore how her horses are tall, taller, tallest. So adorable!

OMG yes!

I LOVE to see children using their artistic talents!

Art = <3

I am SO tempted to go to an art school, but my biggest fear is the cost and actually being able to pay off student loans...

What kind of art would you study? Drawing, painting?

Maya's art teacher told me that she has talent, she just needs more encouragement. :-)

I do a little bit of everything. I'm not really good at anything because I'm so out of practice.
But art is my passion...

I just wish I could find out what it is that I am truly passionate about and focus on it. But I have yet to find that.

I think I'm genuinley good at nearly everything "art" wise that I try, but I dont really get into it as much as I would like. I am thinking about just taking some classes again to see what sparks my interest.

I've already done a variety of things, painting, drawing, sculpture, wheel thrown pottery, and even some of the other arts. Chior, band (I always wanted to be in orchestra though, but could never afford it,) writing, poetry...

I tend to go through phases where I'll be really into something, then I'll just comepletely become disinterested when the novelty wears off.

So I guess I'm on a quest to find out what it is that I could truly be happy doing with my talent.

Aww. :)

I really liked the garden. Very impressive! Nadia's little snowman is cute, too.

How old are your girls? :)

Hello Minn! :-)

Maya is 5 1/2 (she'll be 6 in February) and Nadia just turned two in October.

Six! Sheesh, where did the time go? I can't believe Maya will be 6!
