Good Morning Wonderers.
Fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree is an expression my mother likes to use often. I realize the possibility is true more than I care to admit.
The other day I told you I was at an audition with Alex for a visual arts program. Before the audition, I spoke to him about NOT drawing cartoon characters for the observation piece. Realism I said, realism. The instructor gave them a statue to draw. They were to create a scene using the statue. He drew a museum display. Paintings on walls, guide ropes around the statue, a fully realistic museum with what? Cartoon people. Not just cartoons. His superhero cartoon characters. The instructor said he had a great imagination. I hope the judges are looking for that!
I really planned on doing a portrait on my next installment for art class. I had my model poised. (I took a picture of J sleeping.). I drew out the picture but before I started, I got to thinking I would not be able to see the guide. So what did I use? Permanent marker of course! Funny how after finishing the drawing I remembered Mr. S telling us NOT to use permanent marker. I’ve spent the last five days trying to cover over the lines. This painting went from a realistic approach to something totaling different from what I wanted to do. But my instructor also says there are no accidents in art. So I finished it. I’m proud of it. It’s the level I’m on.
It went from J’s poise
So Mom your saying may hold some truth but as far as following directions goes, I like Mr. S’s statement. Remember that Alex.
THERE ARE NO ACCIDENTS IN ART!
Thanks for perusing and have a great day.
I really, really enjoyed your post. This is the first of your posts that I’ve read and it brought a smile to my face. I’m not sure that was your intention but nonetheless I smiled. The beauty of children and how they view the world.
Thank you Colin.
You are very welcome. I really liked the one about your son and art class. It almost brought me to ask if I could reblog it.
Yes you may
I always ask before I do it. My mother would be proud since I remembered to ask. I hope we will chat more in the future.
Looking forward to it.

I read this post and I was somewhere between a smile and a tear. Children are so honest about the world and how they see it and fit in. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
