Art to Make Your Day Sunny.


A 7-year-old friend visited last night and drew this scene, which I hope will bring some sunshine to folks out there who maybe haven't seen too much of the sun lately.

That little house belongs to a mouse. It's two stories, and the mouse's bedroom is on the top floor. There are all kinds of different plants, but one of them (I bet you can guess which) is a piece of gold. The mouse is getting up early tomorrow morning, because it's going to get the gold before the Leprachaun does.

I mean, wow. What a lot is going on! The artist has a vision for the inside of the house, and what's going to happen. This isn't just a picture, it's a whole story with a setting and a plot and characters.

If you see some wonderful art by a young artist, take a snap of it and send it to me. I'd love to feature it here. And, to hear the story behind the picture. AND, offer other kids some inspiration to come up with their own stories.

What a great way to brighten your day a bit.
