after our little photo-posts-only break last week i'm back with a sketch, dug up from deep inside my personal "archives". have you ever had access to museum archives? i've had the chance once, it's very interesting, in many ways more fun to visit than the actual museum!
this sketch made with feather and ink was part of an exhibition where anja and i were able to exhibit some of our artwork, i think it was in 2002 (the sketch is DIN A2, approx. 25"x 17"inches).
for quite a while i experimented with drawing with ink, using several different feather tips my mom had given us as "end of the school year" presents. these types of presents were tiny wrapped up packages hung on a string across the hall way, to be opened one a day in our last week of school before summer break. there were two presents every day, one for each of us girls. we tried to feel the wrapped presents to find out what we're going to get the next day. the last day's present was the biggest and most exciting one. in addition we would get a present for bringing our report cards home. presents are so much fun!
how was it for you? was there anything exciting about the last week of school?
do you do anything special for your own kids to celebrate summer break? or do you celebrate them going back to school?
since the school year is starting up this week for many of the kids i know:
happy new school year to all of you!
