spring / pears
I love getting pictures as things bloom into life...little signs of Spring, popping up all around. Such a "happy" thing...had to share this one I took yesterday. Don't know what these are, but I thought the picture turned out well! We're enjoying 80 degree weather...maybe we are finally into Spring. Time for flip flops and light skirts and tank tops. More casual...love that! Spring doesn't last too long in Texas, goes pretty much right into Summer. Gotta enjoy this while we can!! Before everything is scorched brown from the heat, and that beautiful neon lime green grass is gone...
I also want to share the above drawing...not too shabby, eh? This came home from school in Aspen's pile of work from the week. My jaw literally dropped when Chris held this up to show me. All the other artwork she's brought home has had that "grade school" look to it, cartoony flowers, etc. This has perspective! And shading! Crosshatch, no less! I think we may have a budding artist on our hands here people!
I took three Drawing classes in college and don't even know that I could draw this! We all know that I can't draw well at all, and got a "C" in my first Drawing class. Almost didn't get to continue in the art program because of that. So a 4th grader creating this really impresses me!!!
Leave some feedback for Ms. Aspen...you'd make her day!!
