The work of a young artist....

I was just in Ft. Collins, Colorado visiting my brother and his family and my dad and stepmother.  My dad and stepmother are selling their house and down sizing.  In all the sorting and packing, my dad found a painting I did in Art 1 at Blevins Junior High School. I was in eighth grade.  It is on purple construction paper with (I'm guessing) tempera paint.  There must have been some sort of resist for the outline....you can see it on the back.  I think this piece was my first exhibition....there is a sticker on the back that it hung at the the Foothills Mall.  I just barely remember going to the mall to see it.  I also brought home another piece from my senior year at RISD....watch for an image in the next post and a possible etsy listing.  


And congratulations to my brother on his new house with his lovely family.  I am happy Ruben finally gets to share it with you!  Yes, my brother owns a kangaroo as pet and he is adorable.  My 19 month old neice thinks he is a bunny that hops.
