Artist at Work

What do you do with sick children?  After the visit to the pediatrician, the diagnosis of strep throat, the journey home via the pharmacy (medicine) and supermarket (popsicles), and before plopping in front of the television (Toy Story), we made some art...





Monster Duck
Bunch of "Colores"
Christopher was totally inspired by an article we saw in September's Family Fun magazine while waiting for the doctor... about Artist Trading Cards.  My boy is a doodler and inventor of mythical creatures, so the thought of making his own cards to trade with friends was quite appealing.  We made 12 cards this afternoon, including:
Grace's Funky
Kmart Lightbulb

Maps
I really scored big in his nine year old eyes when I pulled a copy of 1000 Artist Trading Cards off the shelf and turned to page 250 and showed him where his Mom's ATC's are featured.  You did that???  Why didn't you tell me?  

And the best compliment of all:  


Will you make some for me?

So wonderful to have such a compliment from your boy, "would you make me some?" It's also wonderful you two could spend time making lemonade from lemons or art from a sick day...hurrah!
I commented before but think it ended up in etherland.

This is so awesome - I love playing with my 10 year old (who insists now that I must be an artist, lol!).. Just the other day we were playing with watercolors, and she said to me "life imitates heart," so I painted that on too; then, we painted an orange sun sending "rays of love" to the hearts... so much fun, kids are!!

Moster Duck is fantastic. A photocopy of him would be great on a collaged ATC (maybe with one of your amazing vintage map backgrounds). I love that you're doing art with your son. Kids are such great natural artists!
