special request

For all intents and purposes my weekend started today. The kids were with me because parent/teacher conferences were this morning.

We've been working on one of D's school projects and the only reason I'm here is because my little C asked me to post the drawing below. She'd like to know what you think about it (her words). I'll be reading your comments to her if you care to share.




Friday Tidbits
- Irma Gruenholz: This illustrator uses clay in ways that just astound me.
- Genevieve Bennett: This artist does amazing work in leather.

Well that's it for today. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hello!
    Patricia: those are some lovely links. I especially like the clay illustrations. Very unique.

    C: The rolling grass is especially good. You can almost feel the wind moving through it!

  4. I also especially like the texture of the grass. There is a nice balance to the number of windows and the repeating points. What a nice looking house. I bet a huge family lives there.

  8. All those windows tells me this would be a great house for lazy Sundays or for crafts. It's a nice, tall house so I expect great views. I also like the prominent front door...it says, "Welcome, come on in folks."

  10. I love the drawing! It makes me wonder who lives behind each of those windows and what are they doing right now? And that's what art is supposed to do, right? Make us wonder. And feel a sense of enjoyment/delight/joy.

    I loved this piece of art. Thanks for posting it! xo corinne (st. louis)

  11. little C~

    I really love that you chose to put so many windows on your house to let that big, beautiful sun shine in. That house looks likes there's lot's of fun and happy people all living together and having a good time.

  13. Hi C, I love houses in artwork and yours is especially nice. All those windows must make it a bright and cheery place. You have inspired me to consider adding more windows to the houses I draw. :-)

  14. Hi C:
    Your house looks like a huge dormitory to me- a place where you could live with all your friends and play together and borrow their clothes!

  15. Hi C,

    I really like the house. It seems like it would have a lot of light in it and it's nice and big. I like that we can use our imagination for color. I'm thinking that'd I'd like a red house or a yellow house.

    Thanks for asking your mommy to post it. I enjoyed looking at it.

  16. Little C.

    I love the house you drew. The windows are so cool, I love natural light and in this house you would have plenty of it. I also like the overhang above the door, so just in case it rains, there is a nice warm place to stand while waiting for a taxi cab ;-)

    Love it,
    Kate

  17. Well, C--I am a big fan because I make houses in my work, too! I especially like how very many windows there are in your house, so that it looks like scads of people could live happily there together. Nice!

  18. Little c,
    Your work reminds me of the artwork of the author of Madeline, Ludwig Bemelmans. I would love to hear the story of this house. Who lives here? And what do they do?

  19. Dear C,

    I love the picture you drew. The sunshine is bright on all the windows and it makes me smile. Thanks for sharing it with us all. (My daughter drew one very similar when she was a little girl. I still have it and I posted it on my blog a few months ago!)

  20. Hi C,

    I love your house and it would make such a pretty stamp - you could stamp it in all different colours and make cute cards. I love the sun especially.

  21. Wow! I really like this picture. I wish I had a house with that many windows. Have you though of becoming an architect?

  22. All those windows makes mde think you are a child after my own heart. Mm sunshine.

    Also, I think it would look great embroidered on a bookmark or something similar.

  23. What a wonderful house! It looks like a house with plenty of room for you, your parents, and your grandparents to all be together in one house and everyone can have their own floor of the house. There even looks like there would be room for all your pets to have their own floor to live on and there would be an elevator to get to the different floors!

  24. Wow. My little C has been enjoying all your comments. I didn't expect so many. Thank you so much everyone!

  25. Hi C!

    What a beautiful house! All those windows must make the inside so bright and cheery!!

  26. I love how tall your house is. and all the windows. they are drawn so that they look very alive. I also like how we only get to see part of the sun in the corner. do you draw everyday? I hope so!

  27. C- that is a very interesting building. I keep thinking of all the different things it could be, it would be a lovely house or apartment, but maybe it is an office building or a hospital...I would like to see more about it, maybe what other buildings are near by? What do some of the rooms look like and what kinds of people go there. Keep drawing you a very talented.

  28. I really love your drawing with the big sun, because it makes me look forward to summer - here in Australia we have just finished winter. I am wondering what is in all those windows, especially the one up high...maybe it is an exciting and mysterious attic?? Great drawing!

  31. What type of drawing tool did you use. I notice that the lines are black and thick. It could be a charcoal pencil or a crayon or marker of oil pastel.
