A dear friend who is a seamstress gave me a blanket, which my granddaughter immediately coveted.
So I asked my friend to make a blanket for her, saying I would of course pay her. She said she would love to make one but would like a painting in return. She took C. shopping to pick out material and showed her the space where the painting would hang.
The granddaughter’s painting; she doesn’t title her work:
And a bonus painting I did for the friend, sort of deconstructing the colors in the larger piece.
Since we got starting painting, she did a couple of paintings and “framed” them with duct tape:
Finally, I did a small painting. Its title: “The title of this painting is not ‘Purple Rain.'”
I haven’t posted the cards from the spring iHanna swap yet because I’ve received only nine. I’m hoping #10 is coming from Bora Bora or Australia or some other very faraway place.
