…a child’s authentic, uninhibited, free, vibrant and totally innocent art.
Julia made a paper doll with the most vibrant and rich crayons and I absolutely loved it and asked her to draw me another one that wasn’t cut out, to frame - In the end I framed both – we framed them together and she watched that whole process of cutting mounting board, taking the staples out of the old framed picture, re-taping it, etc.
Anyway, I love both of them, so one is in our bedroom upstairs and the other is downstairs on our ledge with all our photos in the lounge.
I love the way those 2 pictures light up morning/day when I look at them – the burst of joy they give me is awesome! I love the rainbow colours in them!
This is the first one which was cut out and that I really love.
This is the next one which is in our room, the cute thing was the legs to one side. I don’t think she really noticed that until I was hanging it on the wall and she said “Mummy, that doll is sitting on a chair”. I thought this was so clever as when you look at it, it does have that optical illusion, don’t you think?
