The Grand girl, age 5, delights me with her art work. The other day, she got intereted in ancient Egypt so we looked up images and then she asked for paper and a pen. The dress has embroidery on the yoke and a pleated skirt. On the feet, sandals, She said "They might look like duck feet but they aren't."
She made colorful portrait of me for my birthday a year ago July, and then made two portraits of me a few days ago. In one, I look angry, but she said "that you calling for Chuck to come downstairs." Actually, she was the one calling for him that day. He was upstairs in his studio and she wanted to see him.
I've been spending a lot of time writing postcards to voters to get out the vote in various elections. I did a batch for different candidates for state senate in New York state, and now we're on to the U.S. midterms. This is a very important election. I'm doing what I can to help by spending time and money on stamps. I hope my cards motivate the receivers to get out to the polls.
We're off for a few days on a trip to the opposite coast. Quite a good time to leave as a big hurricane is set to effect weather in our area this coming week end. I'll be posting photos from the trip when I return.
Do you get active in politics? What do you do? Do you have small artists to interact with? I wish I could still draw like that. I have too much education and can't regain that lovely unselfconsciousness of childhood. Picasso strived for it and I think he did a good job getting to it. What do you think?
