“Crossing Over to the land of simple play and laughter.”
Working on this miniature painting brought back fond childhood memories. I loved coloring and remember the joy I had when my mom would come home with a new box of 64 crayola crayons! Oh the joy and thrill of scanning all those colors and imagining the creations I would make with them. With such an array of colors I was thrilled to discover that I could use varied shades of one color to create depth even in my coloring books.
Marbles also helped my friends and I while away the time. We loved twirling round and round to make earth pots to shoot them in. Playing marbles was an art that our youth today seem to have missed. Not only were they fun to play with, but they were delightful to study as well. Looking into the depths of those glassy balls caused our imaginations to soar.
I hope my new painting “Crossing Over” brings back fond memories and makes you smile today! Here is a quote I found I thought you would enjoy!
“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”
“Crossing Over” sold quickly (before I could post it online), to a friend and loyal collector who purchased it as a gift. Miniatures make unique and wonderfully personalized gifts. Better than buying at big box stores!
