When I grow up

I want to be an artist.

I love everything about art. I love the way clay and slip feels on the wheel, even though it has been a very long time....

Funny, since I really do not like dirt on my hands at all.

I love having multiple colors of dried paint on my hands and a paint brush in one hand and one between my teeth....

My dream house has a studio in it. Large windows with white, gauzy curtains blowing. Full of light! Funny, since my house now is very dark and neutral....

I love sitting at a loom, weaving different colored yarn in and out, back and forth, even though it has been a very long time....

I love having black fingers from drawing with charcoal and oily fingers from pastels....

When I grow up.....
Did you know that a stay-at-home-mom doesn't grow up until her kids grow up?

So right now, I may not have the time or space to do all these things that I love so much on the scale I would like. BUT, I am doing them all the same.

Just recently I helped my 5 and 8 yr olds paint color wheels. We learned about primary colors and complimentary colors. We mixed and mixed and mixed the colors and then painted pictures.

Teaching shading and perspective is a big deal! Children love to draw. Well, most children. They really love it when you draw with them, showing them how to make something look "not so flat".

They love to use different things like charcoal and pastels and markers and acrylics.

So, maybe I am an artist.....after all!
