Art Boy


I went to Johnny’s art show at school this morning and saw all his work. Here is a picture of him with his Matisse-inspired paper collage. The name of the piece is “First Sign 101.” (He is suddenly obsessed with putting numbers after names. He was reeling off a list of things he was going to name the next Webkinz he gets and every name had some number after it. *shrug*)
Here is his tribute to Georgia O’Keefe:
All told, it was a very good show. The kids worked hard, and learned lots, as evidenced by JZ regaling me, countless times, with the list of artists they’d studied (which included one guy I’d never even heard of before). Who knows; maybe we have the next Picasso on our hands, here, and some day in the future we can look back and say, “Ah, yes, it all started with that preschool art show.” Or maybe he’ll just be one of those inmates that does really good drawings on the backs of the envelopes he sends to his family members, asking for money. Dude could go either way.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
