It is a rare occasion that I get to enjoy the company of all my neeps (nieces and nephews) at once. But this weekend has been one of those weekends. In fact I even got to see the boyfriend’s neeps – and I love it. It is noisy and rowdy with pillow bombs falling and worms being hunted. It is a ton of fun.
So I found it only natural to ask their expert opinion (clearly they have good taste, they have accepted me as a member in their Furios (furious) Six club) as to what I should create for yesterday’s work. The response from my nephew was a bird – an owl specifically, and a car. Clearly I didn’t take explicit direction, but I did use his suggestions in making the ink drawn 4 x 5.5″ card. And my niece drew right alongside me, which was great!
My mom astutely mentioned that the ink drawing ponders the question of “chicken or the egg” with the answer or “neither, they just met.”
