Beach treasures

Beach treasures. Before you think Paula has painting pebbles, I didn’t. That awesome white stone with that intricate wine red pattern, that is dried seaweed. Nature is a great artist.

Dog Sketch

And my darling daughter drew this cute dog. I framed it straight away. My daughter’s shop is at Etsy too, click here to say hello by giving her perhaps a whole lot of hearts?

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.
