What is Art?

Our Resident Artist has gained some competition.

It all started with a trip to the store to buy school supplies for the oldest. The colored pencils were buy-one-get-one-free, so the littlest got a box too.

Apparently she likes colored pencils much better than the crayons that she has constant access to, for it has been a non-stop art fest ever since.

This is "Some Gwass and X's and Da Sun Went Behind a Twee":

When asked what this piece was, she declared, "It isn't Anyfing, Mama. Its just Cowors."

And that makes me really happy.

Oh yes, colored pencils are the best! They are sharp for making details, yet spread vibrant color nicely. I'm pretty committed to Crayola, but we've used Faber-Castell here and are thrilled. Also, the FC ones can be used as/with water colors. Super fun! I'll send you some sample pics soon. They're mostly washable, but we always wear a smock(bib) anyway. Enjoy!

Tell you what... this is as good as almost anything I saw at the Guggenheim on Friday... Though there was this Monet I was rather partial to. I hope she keeps loving colours!
