Hello and welcome to Artist’s Corner. Regular readers will know that, of late, this has been the bit of my blog on which I have been posting the various artistic endeavours of my two-year-old daughter. And while she continues to enjoy putting washable felt-tip pen to paper, I’m not currently at home as much as I have been, what with the re-opening proper of schools in the UK. Even in the likely event that there is another spike in the infection rate and further school closures in the future, I’m still going to be pretty busy with school-related stuff for the foreseeable, which means that I’ll be seeing less of my daughter. Because I don’t really want to spend any of that time trying to get her to make ‘art’ for my blog (particularly as she would rather use that time to jump up and down on my back. And sometimes my head) I feared this might be the last Artist’s Corner for a while.
However, Little Proclaims wanted to continue. I mean her actual motivation is questionable given that she has no idea what a blog is, but she elected to be unwell this weekend just gone and because of the current climate, even though it was clearly just a common cold that ailed her, I felt it unwise to take her out in public. Trapped indoors on Sunday morning, she proved quite productive in her artistic endeavours, so much so that I have no end of pieces to share with the blogosphere. I’ll be dubbing them ‘The September Sessions’ and hopefully I’ll be posting the first of those next week. However, due to technical difficulties I’ve been unable to scan any of them for this week so instead I’ll share a different project from August when Little Proclaims was working in a new medium thanks to some oversized chalks she had for her birthday.
As ever, I’ll leave it to the regular art critics who frequent the comments section to interpret the meaning behind these pieces:
