Hello Everyone,

One thing that I have learned about myself over time is that some things never change. A while ago my mother had found some of my old art work, from when I was a child, that she had kept. She brought them to me and I had put them away in the closet. Yesterday, I rediscovered them and thought it would be neat to share.

This first one was done when I was about 9 years old. You can see I loved color then like I do now. Very abstract, but would make a nice quilt, wouldn't it? It even won First place in our local savings bank art contest. FYI... the bank no longer exists.

This one was done two years later and also won First Place. Again quite abstract, but full of color. I did use a different medium though. The first was crayon, this one was markers.

This last one was done one year after the last. You can see it was a still life portrait of art supplies! How appropriate too. I vaguely remember doing this one in art class. You can see it was mounted on gray construction paper. The construction paper looks like it has seen better days. This was done with crayons.

So as you can see not much has changed, I am still in love with color, but now in a different medium... FABRIC!

Do you have artwork from your younger days?

Until Next Time...
