The Evolution of an Art Project


I have mentioned a couple of times that Grace is creating art for an art show being held in May. Just like any teenager - sometimes it is like pulling teeth to get her to sit down and create some for the show even though she draws any where between 2 and 6 hours a day sometimes. Yesterday she created something for the show and it took her like two hours from start to finish. Her tool of choice is always pencil and marker. 


Next she must come up with an original idea. I am so proud of Grace. She is very talented but probably the thing I am most impressed with is the way she can come up with lots of original ideas to draw. The characters she imagines in her head are just amazing. We found a picture frame at Goodwill for a dollar and that is what she worked off of.


Now the magic has happened and all the color brings it to life. You can see where she created a stone wall between the characters from the mat. 

The artwork is hanging on her bedroom wall until the art show. Mission accomplished.

I love the brick wall. It unites what could have been two separate pieces and makes the frame part of the artwork.
