A Little Art If You Please

Pop Art Self Portraits
I hope this post finds each one of you smiling and feeling just fine. I was a less than a stellar blogger last week I know. Life got a bit busy around Rabbit Run. This past weekend we entertained out of state company, celebrated a dear friend's birthday, celebrated another dear friend's son's birthday and enjoyed some delightful Spring weather. Whew! Now THAT is a full weekend!
We also attended a wonderful art show featuring area elementary school students. One of those artistic kids just happened to be our Gracie. The show was held in an area performing arts center and filled to the rafters (literally!) with interesting, thought provoking and down right smile inducing pieces of art! I wanted to share a few with all of you...
This is one of Grace's pieces. A mixture of paint and sand... Our girl with her art teacher

Oh! I wanted to tell you that the homeowners, whose *Stone Leprechauns* lost their heads, have not given up! They have added new stones and are readying a "Rock Solid" Easter Bunny display!
A reporter for the newspaper is using my photographs of the St. Patrick Day rock statues to accompany a little story about the family.
I hope your week is a sweet one!
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

It's so nice when children get to display their creative side in a venue like this. Miss Grace ... you go girl!

I remember my niece J's piece labled, 'A Quarter Dahli' was in a school art show at the local mall. xxoo

My favorite kind of art show! I love the creativity children have in them. Of course I love Grace's is a butterfly. Do you know my butterfly story?

I am very impressed with Gracie's artwork and that of the other students. The display represents such a wide range of creative endeavor. Children never fail to amaze me with their fertile imaginations. My son, who is in his 40's now, is an artist.

Grace's work is wonderful--you've got a real artist in your family!

Bonnie said...

Happy Spring to you and your family.

Wow! All of the artwork in your pictures. . .Isn't it amazing what creative and talented kids can accomplish? Your Grace's work is so neat (as in cool, wow, awesome)! Thank you for sharing.

Pamela said...

very very impressed I am (that is my Yoda impression, by the way)

Beautiful work!! I wish I'd had an art teacher when I was her age (and encouragement!)

(busy stuff happening here, too. I may have to take a few weeks bloggy break)

Isn't it amazing the talent these young people have? I remember going to art shows like that when my boys were in school and I was always in awe. Shawn, my oldest, was very much into art and some of his work was displayed at the Art Center in town so of course I was there often to check everything out! lol Grace did a wonderful job with her art work, she's such an all around talented young lady:-) xoxo

Ok Susie Q. No one else said anything, so I am going to. Are you sure you are feeling fine now? Either that or I am seeing double. It does seem to me there are two matching paragraphs in this post. I actually had to scroll back to see if I was somehow reading the same paragraph over again. LOL!

Loved all the art pictures! Gracie did a good job on hers. It is amazing what young people come up with in their artist endeavors. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow, I am so impressed with the artwork you pictured! Miss Grace is quite the artist herself! There is a lot of amazing talent there, for sure!

Happy Spring!

I love kid's art! It's always so fresh and creative. The pop art pieces are so cool. I thought Grace's butterfly piece was a hooked rug at first! Must be the texture of the sand - very cool!

Hi Sue! Wow! Grace is so talented! A real artist! It has been fun watching her artistic talent grow over the past few years. Love to all!
