My mom came to visit me and we had a blast laughing and carrying on. She brought with her some old photos of me when I was little. I loved these two of me doing some arts and crafts.
Here I am hand sewing something, probably a little doll or puppet. I don't remember what it was exactly, but I was always making something:
You know something? I still sit on my feet like that. My mom gets so upset that I still do this. She is worried about me getting a clot in my leg or something. She is probably right, but I just can't stop sitting like this!
Here I am doing a watercolor painting:
Picasso is quoted as saying "All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. "
This is so true. The ease that children possess in creating is so beautiful and natural. It is difficult to maintain that free expression as an adult, but I try. I always try to just let go and tap into my inner child.
With that said, I am proud to show my inner child that I made it into a magazine with her art.
Here is a photo of me at the local bookstore tonight with the Artful Blogging magazine that I am in.
