Art 101...


My little miss is creative...very creative. And a tinsy bit ornery.  If you've been following lately, then you may have read a few posts about her latest escapades.  She's not my firstborn, so you'd think I'd be well-versed on toddlerhood and could out smart her.  Not the case.  I call this post Art 101.  The art of skillful sneakiness.  The art of ingenuity.  The art of originality.  The art of pulling a fast one...

So, without further ado, an introduction to Eva's first art showing.  All are welcome:

Title:  Sticky Hyperbole

Medium:
Syrup filtered through mesh strainer over accent pillow

Artist:  Eva Jackson



Don't ask me how in my own kitchen, I missed my daughter rummaging through cabinets to gather her supplies.  I was present.  I was distracted.  It wasn't until I perked up my ears to the content silence ringing through my house that I was alarmed. 

Upon frantic investigation, I found her.  In the living room.  Pillow layed before her.  Syrup bottle poised in the air.  A fine stream of syrup raining through the strainer.  A wide grin spread across her face.

She was pleased with her masterpiece.
