Dew Drop's paintings are all about lines - horizontal and vertical strokes with barely a wave in them. He is all business.
The Minx loves dots. Her works resemble Aboriginal dot paintings at times, where she splashes the brush persistently against the paper to create a shape (it is rarely recognisable as an object however). She loves her work and paints with vigour and a smile.
Like all other areas of development, my children have shown their different personalities. It is such a wonderful gift to be given the opportunity to watch these unique people grow. Who knows if one of them will become an artist of note but I love that they all think they are now!
I wonder when we become conscious of our artistic talents (or lack there of)? When do we stop painting like no-one is judging?
Do you have a Picasso or perhaps a Dali in your family?
PS: Six items or less update - having trouble getting photos sorted of my six items (probably because I am always wearing some of them and my camera is in hiding). Will continue to try and post stat.
PPS: No photos of the twin's paintings available - will add to post once I find that camera!
