Art. My daughter is a big fan.
And as her mother, I am all for the joy and thoughtfulness of creative expression.
My daughter is a prolific painter, drawer, colorer, and “chalker.”
She paints inside at her art table and outside at her easel. She “reads” books about art and absorbs artsy books about animals.
She crafts clothing out of paper and colors shapes on her umbrella.
She has always been drawn to the creative and the colorful. Art is in everything she does.
She can appreciate a glimpse into the process of famous photographer Chuck Close, and maximize her “make time” with a true blue sculptor and artist like my friend Maxie.
Maxie’s current jellyfish series is whimsical and filled with wonder. Olivia loved helping Maxie photograph her latest in the series; O was captivated.
It is my hope she will always feel the freedom to create, to craft, to color, and to call herself an artist. She is limited only by her own budding imagination and emerging ambition. The love of art can carry her far and up and away!
