Lapwings, Vanellus vanellus, Peewits, Kiebitz, Kievitten, Avefría Europea, or Pavoncella

My Lapwing Fine Art cards 
.

About a year ago my daughter drew a Lapwing. I recently found it back in my photo-files and asked my daughter permission to upload her Lapwing on my blog.

My daughter’s Lapwing, 2010.

I am happy my daughter made this drawing a year before my drawing of two Lapwings. Her drawing is spontaneous and it captures what is essential about Lapwings: their proud and elegant statute. My daughter must have been about 9 years when she drew her Lapwing.

Picasso said it took him 30-40 years to be able to draw like a child again. He couldn’t be more right about the underlying assumption that children draw essential lines and features and that an adult mind often corrupts and blurs a pure and spontaneous perception of objects.

  1. These cards are SOOOO beautiful! Details look incredible real. Very well done, dear Paula! I also love your daughter’s bird, very essential and with its own character. I know it’s inspiring to have creative children around! :)
