Don’t you wonder whether there will be another generation that loves to do what you love to do? My daughters are very creative – all three of them. They show their skill and talent and passion in many areas but none of them are art. My grandchildren do not seem to have any interest either. One of my grandsons used to draw wolves and I thought maybe he would want to design video games. Now he’s decided he wants to be an author. Oh my…well there’s hope. Recently I had a chance to do some Jackson Pollack style painting with two of my “Greats”… great granddaughters that is. We laid flip chart sized sheets of paper on my deck and squeezed and sloshed our paints…swish, swish!

Layla is two years old and a minimalist:

Hayden is 4 years old and a master in the making:

And Granny has lost count and was just having fun!

    How wonderful, Linda! My granddaughter just turned 3, and my daughter said the grand was mixing paints, dipping her finger into all the colors and then put it on the paper. “Hmm, … brown!” So we had a painting session last night in which we practiced dipping the brush into only two colors. “Look! Not brown!” was her persistent comment.

    Oh my goodness! Layla and Hayden, you are very, very good! You did a great job of filling the space on your paper and both paintings are full of beautiful color, energy and are a delight to dazzle the eye! Granny? Good job on sharing what you love to do. As art and some of the other extras in schools get pushed to the side more frequently than not, I wonder how our young ones will learn the joy of individual expression. Excellent post.

    What fun you all must have had. There does seem to be a Pollack influence.
