I was getting ready for the little artists today. Perhaps I'll call them the little artist-illustrators. I'm looking forward to creating more picture books with them and wanted to add more color in their room!

I put some of their favorite picture books on the shelves. Lots of reading ahead! A couple of fun puppets are up there too.

The large piece of art on the top shelf is a collage titled, Busy Bridges. This was a fast art project I did for a show we had at Walnut Hill. It's made with African fabrics, buttons, painted papers and 3 photos.

What makes the piece special is that it is a little collaboration between Zach and myself. Those are Zach's very creative bridges that he made with blocks when he was younger.

  1. Delightful, Marge. Something tells me that you buy books for the color as well as for the story.
    What a wonderful activity to do with your grands. Perhaps they'll each turn out to be great storytellers.
