One Proud Papa

My oldest daughter's pastel drawing was selected as "Best of Show" in the elementary/middle school division at our annual district art show this past weekend. This annual show typically has anywhere from 700-750 pieces of art work from students in grades 1-8. Believe it or not, my daughter is in first grade!

And before you ask, I had no input on this drawing. She is an amazing little girl and is very imaginative and creative...all on her own. I am so happy for her.

Update 4.16.10

Still going at it. This piece is finally coming together. I still have some line work to do on the door tops and corners. The construction of the phone is moving forward as well. I have been carving the handset and will soon be starting on the remainder of the phone. I have not even addressed the exterior yet. The title is still in a state of flux as well. Several ideas have been discussed.

I am finding out that I must be patient and have realized that work of this style/medium does not happen quickly. This is a dramatic change from the fast paced style of my previous paintings. As always shoot me an email or leave me a comment.
