brought to you by a mama artist moment...
1. My son is a super creative kid that loves art and drawing.
2. I am obsessed with Sally Mann and am reading her new biography Hold Still.
So when T came in this Sunday morning to tell me that "there was a mommy daddy book on the black chair." I say "thats mama's book" T says " I was looking at it" I say "ok. you can look at it that's fine. Just be careful with it."
Go back to sleep for an hour.
Wake-up. "what ya doing?"
t: Mama I am drawing this little girl. I like this picture
And I look. He is drawing Virginia from the image in the book.
me: Oh that's Virginia and on the other page that's an image of Emmett. Those are the kiddos of the photographer.
t: Why are they naked?
me: They live on a big farm in the middle of Virginia. They have a big area to swim and a cliff that overlooks it. No one is around for a long time. If we had a place like that you and me would be swimming naked too.
Then draws Emmett.
My mama artist heart was exploding with love, pride and artistic joy.
