Tuesday Twinterview

Which is your favorite work of art of your own creation that is currently on display* in our house?
[*We rotate works regularly.]

Darren:

Title: Big Kitty (a.k.a. Tiger)
Medium: Marker on Doodle Pad paper
c. 2006
Currently on View: in the Dining Room Gallery

This piece is perhaps the outstanding work in Darren's approximately month-long era of "Mommy, please draw a ________ in pencil for me to color." The stripe placement and face delineation are entirely his own.

Sarah:

Title: Sarah's Flower
Medium: Mixed (Pencil, colored pencil, crayon)
c. 2008
Currently on View: in the Dining Room Gallery

A careful study in pattern, color balance, symmetry and calligraphy, this combination of the natural and fantastical was inspired by the handmade journal making of her beloved kindergarten teacher, Emily Hooker.

Tune in tomorrow for Mama's selections when asked the same question, and some elaboration on regularly installed twin-house art exhibitions.

I'm thinking you should set up an Etsy site for the kids! *Grin* I'm terribly flattered by little miss Lage. When are we hanging out soon?
