Yichien & Emilie Art-A Day Updates


Hello fellow artists,
Ever since we started the art-a-day, our dinning table begins to pile up many interesting materials. Emilie (4.5 year-old) loves to do quick art. I, on the other hand, like to organize my work space before I paint and ponder my brush strokes. So, the conversation goes like this, “I am done, mom. Why haven’t you started yet? See, mom, you do not need to worry that much. Just try it. Be brave! Why don’t you put some blue? Do you need help? I can help!” Of course, my 2-year-old is into helping, too. Soon enough, the art making process has become behavior management. However, after 26 days of doing it, I found myself longing for this unique bonding with my children. What a wonderful thing to do before their nap time! In the past weeks, Emilie made many 4x6 drawings, collages, and two canvases. I, on the other hand, try to work my way to put some ideas into reality. I will share with you some more. Thanks for including us.

This is so cheerful and carefree. Ah, to paint like that again! I love your art-process differences between mother and child. Can't wait to see these in person!

The image is done by Emilie. I read your comments to her. She was so excited to see her art on the computer. She said "thank you" and hurried off to make cards for you.
