the artist within

...emerges once again. She looks an awful lot like this.



And when one has this much talent, it's a shame not to be able to wear it once in a while. (Note: purple Sharpie is always an excellent choice.)



So it appears we're still in the baroque period. Note the characteristic exaggerated sense of motion and strong detail, resulting in a tone of exuberance and grandeur.



Soon to be followed by the Rococo and Neoclassical movements. Do stay tuned.

Sharpie is the perfect medium for this type of art. Excellent balance throughout the subject. I probably would have suggested a different canvas, but it makes for a very unique piece.

My 2 1/2 yr old just cannot stop drawing on herself! LOL She will use paper for a while, but then she is just drawn (LOL) to color on herself.

If you're the parent who catches her in mid-artistry, you're required to administer the stern talk about the merits of paper.

I, however, was the second parent on the scene. I got to laugh.
