Can anyone ever remember the very first thing you did that was considered art? Were you or are you the parent that sticks everything your child does on the frig, as though this obscure place is "The Louvre"....I know I was!
I remember when my daughter was young, she would make up drawings of imaginative things, wrap them up, and give them as gifts to everyone. Boy, would I love to have some of those today. She always loved to draw and has quite a vivid imagination. I have this painting that she did twenty plus years ago of some Mexican worry dolls that I had sitting around. It was so impressive that I had it framed. It now hangs in my livingroom bringing frequent smiles to my face every time I see it. So many memories come from those pieces of construction paper and scribbles that seem to accompany our kids home from school. Our refrigerators get covered and all the desk drawers become treasure troves of childhood memories.
