The Art Show

December was a crazy busy month. As such, I am going to have to back track a bit.

On December 15th, the babe's class had their annual "art show."  The school displays the work the kids have been focusing on since September.  We get all dressed up and eat a pot luck dinner together.  It it quite the event.

I am posting a picture of the babe and her art piece, inspired by Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.  I don't normally put pics of the babe up, but she looks so proud standing next to her art, and I can't resist sharing it with you.

As you can see (despite the fact that I cut off the top of it), the babe's painting is quite something.  While many of her female classmates speak of unicorns, princesses, and castles in the evening's program, my daughter apparently took her inspiration from a friend.

The piece is called "Eleanor Is Writing Her Numbers"
Acrylic on Canvas

"This painting is of Eleanor because she once had pink eye and needed to go to the doctor.  The brown ladder is for her to fix her roof and the blue ladder is for her tears to travel.  The table is for dinner and the blue circle is her computer.  The red lines make her a wolf.  Eleanor is in school and is looking at her new boot her mom bought her.  This painting can be sad and this painting can be happy.  My favorite part of being down in the art studio was doing the (collaborative) painting with my friends."

Now if you can deconstruct that for me, and let me know what it means exactly, I owe you.

I am proud of my little artist and while her style may have shifted from last year's piece, I can't wait to hang the babe's new work up on our new walls.
