Home Grown Art.

Tidying her bedroom was a worthwhile venture for daughter No. 1 as it unearthed some treasures that would otherwise be sandwiched in an art folder in the dark recesses of an overcrowded wardrobe.
These are sketches she did while away on her Year 7 Sydney/Canberra School Trip in 2009.


Note the ferry in the foreground (below).



The Sydney Opera House.




I think there needs to be one more picture to complete the set, so a family trip to Sydney may be in order :o)



I don't think I will be able to leave the black table here in the hallway as I don't think hubby will be too thrilled about having to walk sideways around the corner to the bedroom!

Ange, you did well to have them framed. How lovely they look! And yeah, I'd move the table too before someone gets angry at it! xx

Ann said...

Boo to that... surely your kind, sophisticated, sensitive man could slip sylph-like round the corner? (I'm guess he might read your comments too - am I helping?!)

Lovely work by your daughter... no guess as to where the talent came from... A x

Excellent artworks - your daughter has talent! I always like the simplicity of charcoal sketches and the black/white contrast. Looks fantastic in that corner, but no, I don't see your husband shimmying around the table every time. :) x

Your daughters art work is fabulous, she is very talented and I agree, I think a third one would look great. You should plan that trip soon : )

You have one talented daughter there Ange, they look fantastic! And you're right, you need another one - arrangements always look better in odd numbers. K xx

Trish said...

She definately has a great talent there!

Meg and Mum's said...

Wow your kids are talented! I think you're right about a third one too. It would really look complete. You must be one proud Mama :)

Kym said...

as a Sydney girl i have to say how unreal. She is a real talent for sure - we saw similar to that at the big Tweed art gallery and they were over 2000.00 so you may have a budding talent there (like her mum), Mel xx
