Granny took me to Gallery One
Granny teaches Teddy Bear making on Fridays. I told her I am lonely when I am home all day by myself. I asked her if Shirley could come and play? She said no, that wasn't a good idea, but I could come with her if I promised to be good.
What fun I was amongst real artists. They were painting abstract painting. I'm sure I would be good at it because it is not supposed to look like anything.
I was listening very hard, and trying to keep out of the way because they were all concentrating very hard to paint Nothing??? Well some thing that looked like nothing. Get the drift.
This one looked like squares, I think may be it was a painting that looked like nothing that you could make out it was a board game. Yes I can see you had to jump from one red square to the other. Well that's what I think.
In the gallery they had lovely things to sell. Felted scarves, felted beads, bags, jewelry, soap, tea pot warmers, Wood carving, all sorts of nice things.
I am always spoilt by Granny's students I love seeing the bears they are making.
The gallery manager Julie took me on a tour of all the paintings that were in an exhibition. I liked this one, it was of STUFF on an oil rig. You know boy stuff.
I had a go at painting a hat for myself in Abstract that was supposed to look like nothing. Do you think I got the right abstract? Does it look like nothing?
Well it is supposed to be a hat, although I do hope it doesn't look like one; so I can pass the painting test.
I'm dreaming of being the next Vincent Van Gogh
I don't think he would pass in Andrew's class because it looks like something. Well I think it does.
Ahh! I concentrated so hard all day I'm ready for toast with peanut butter and honey, plus a glass of warm chocolate milk for supper.
See you all next week.
I picked a bunch of Native Australian flowers for all my beautiful followers
I hope you like them.
My thought for the week.
