I was frustrated earlier this week because I'd been doing a lot of updating my website, Pinterest, and things like that and not creating art. So as a way to jump back into art, I had my daughter draw a picture in my sketchbook.
As you can see she's really into drawing circles right now. They looked like tires to me- but what is that big one up high? A boulder?
So I made this drawing. I never would have come up with this without her circles on the page. Having someone else start a drawing is a way to let your problem-solving skills take you somewhere a little different.
And here it is painted. Now I feel fired up and ready to dive into the next project that's on my list! Making pictures is so much fun!
Here are a couple of other artist teams doing wonderful work:
