Surreal me

The two older boys have had Raw Art lessons at school. And the art from the last session was frame-worthy. It very much suits the aesthetic of the "art" we have hanging in the house - eclectic mix of everything.


My two new artworks!

Son #1, who is eight-years old, did a Picasso inspired pastel drawing of me. It will hang in the master bedroom.

This is about as close as you're ever going to get to seeing a picture of me (I'm like the Stig). Love it, as you should of your own child's work. He's made my broad Polynesian nose so petite. Bless him.

Crazy fish pastel drawing

And Son # 2, who is five-years old, did a pastel drawing of under the sea. We think it is really cool, again, as you should of your own child's work. That crazy fish with the shapes floating around it on the dark painted background ticks all the boxes. He wants it to hang in his room.

They are framed in two inexpensive Ikea Ribba frames, which are perfect for this type of work. The frames also give their work a semblance of credibility that you can't get with blu-tack!

Hanging their work is quite a joyous thing.

  3. I think your boys have some serious talent. And I have no doubt that framing them will inspire them even more. Send any spares this way!!

  4. They look fabulous. I just love kids art. I used to teach little tackers and was amazed at what little ones could do.
    Isn't Ikea fab for frames :)

  8. How good are these paintings - what talented little fellas you have there! My kids all did Raw Art at school, and I've kept all their 'Picasso Heads' and weird abstract works too. And you're right, the frames are much classier than blu tack! K xx

  9. Those two pieces are great. Seriously. I love the pictures children do of their parents. They are a great combination of wishful thinking and pure love because that is of course how they really see you. xoxo

  11. Wow, fantastic effort boys! I have a collection of the things my 2 boys did at school. Lots of macaroni and hand prints, you know the stuff. Occassionally there was the odd frame worthy one. Too long ago now, they are 25 and 28, but I still have them to show the grandkids (when it happens, not wishing for that one yet)...Terese
