Every child is an artist.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain artist once we grow up."

Ah, you'd need to have a heart made of stone not to want to grin from ear to ear, seeing this - isn't it wonderful?

Love the kids' paintings. Some of those kids are only two and three years old.

SWS- Yes. I've always framed my childrens art. It's beautiful.

Tomcat- Your welcome. We need a little distraction from the worlds woes.

E4E- I loved it! Thank you. Tonight I go to an opening locally by 2 of my favorite living artists. One of them sometimes reminds me of Hopper. Hope to take lots of pictures.

No- Frame some of the kids art. Then you won't have to thank me.

Babzy-Thank goodness for kids. Always there giving us good stuff for free!

Some mature like fine wine,
others grow up to be piss artists

PS - If children could paint like that, what would they evolve into

I have a painting framed on my wall from my son when he was about 5. He loves it and wishes he could do that now.

The colors and shapes are beautiful. Children see things differently than adults. It's fun to be reminded by them that the world is wonderous.

Makes me wish I could paint something besides a wall.

I have my young niece look at my paintings without any other people around. She gives great comments and insight without anyone influencing or effecting her view.

It's very hard to maintain (perhaps impossible) or recapture the innocence and freedom and creativity which we enjoy as a child.

Thanks, I really enjoyed the paintings. I spent three years as a volunteer art docent at our local elementary school and never got tired of watching the kids create and listening to the explanations that went along with their masterpieces. I loved every minute of it.

Hey Mary, thanx for visiting my dormant graffiti blog, hehe.

So you know, I am the same Yhate entity that has frequented your site in the past. We're just growing in number so I've taken a step down from being the head admin.

Anywayz! — Over at I just posted something I found in my front yard that made me think of you!

Thank you for being such an inspiring blog. It truly warms my heart to know peeps like you exist on the shore!
