|Art I Heart|
Share the art you love from your walls, a birthday card, what your child drew at school, that you saw in The National Gallery in London...
1. Choose one piece of art that has a short personal story behind it. It could be something on your wall, something you've seen in a gallery and love, homedrawn, on a postcard, on a birthday card, something by Degas or something by your DS.
2. Take a photograph, scan or download a picture of your picture and post it along with the short story about why you are drawn to it, have it on your wall, bought it, or hate it. Don't forget to link back to the linky so your readers can see the other entries.
3. Link up (it's open till next Thursday, 4pm GMT), leave a comment, et voila!
Not the best focussed photo of the artwork but you'll get the picture (pun intended) even it's a bit blurred. A year and a half ago at 20 months, DD started Nursery. This is the drawing she did on her first day. The Hebrew at the top of the frame says: My First Picture At Nursery. I have it up still on our 'gallery' on the back of the door.
This particular one always makes me smile and laugh at myself. It represents one of those 'I know I'm a mother' moments. Why? At the end of the first day the teacher put all the First Pictures up on the wall. When I came to collect DD I looked at the display and I honestly thought that DD's picture was the best. And I honestly thought I was being objective.
Later I laughed when I realized that I had been a typical mother. I was so happy to have been a typical mother and to have, finally, gained some insight into the minds of those
deluded women who think that their perfectly average children are more amazing than everyone else's children. My only saving grace was that I didn't go round telling everyone what a gifted artist my daughter is. Since then a degree of objectivity has returned and there are some very gifted 3yo artists at the nursery. However, I don't think that DD is one of them at the moment.
