I relish the surprise trapped inside a sheet of blank paper. I love the look of deep concentration on little kid’s faces as they transform thoughts into visual two-dimensional form. I’m dazzled when new revelations are released by children with wands of waxy colored crayons.
Little children see the world through fresh, innocent eyes. Shapes are carefully and tediously drawn. Surprises that capture their hearts and souls transform paper from plain to extraordinary.
As a grandmother, I fill with anticipation…
I feel blessed to watch as my three-year old grand-daughter puts her wands of waxy colored crayons to paper. Then- I listen with unbiased ears as she enthusiastically reveals the story that she created on her page. She is learning to observe and record ideas of her experience.
Each drawing holds a brand new surprise…
