Art Studies

We are working on an artist a week. We started with Wassily Kadinsky. Then we did Henri Matisse. I love loved studying his work. And this week we are studying Andy Goldsworthy. 

He used to be a Math Professor and now focuses mainly on his art. He uses only things found in nature and does a lot of work with ice, dirt, rocks, soil, leaves, sticks, etc. He has a bit of a circular theme. Look him up, his work is brilliant. We set out into the yard to build our own art work. It was such a perfect morning. The light was beaming down on us and it was a bit cooler than it has been. Even William worked diligently on his art piece.

We also tried a fun project while sweet friend Emily visited for the weekend. It was rainy so we set it up inside. It is a fantastic idea, but don't try it in your kitchen -- especially with a two year old.

 George Wilder wouldn't let me look at his until he finished, so I stood behind him as the sun came over the house. Such an incredible sun beam!
