So I continued my drawing experiments throughout the tail end of last week. I squeezed them into my day between school drop offs, soccer practices, doctor appointments, Halloween parades, and of course, the power cut bought on by ‘Superstorm’ Sandy.
Note to self: drawing by candle light sounds lovely and romantic, but is actually rather painful to the eyes and brain.
Not everything I created was wonderful, but I do feel rejuvenated, in a creative sense. Here are some of the things I did:
I particularly enjoyed working with the colored paper.
Todd Oldham of ‘Kid Made Modern’ fame, has a great range of art materials for kids at Target, and I couldn’t help myself when I saw his huge block of colored papers. My daughter squealed with delight when she realized that some of the papers had glitter in them. If you like paper, go and take a look.
