Arting for 365 Day 54: Museum Finds

Day 54 (6/21/12): Museum Finds

Each square 4.75 x 4.75″ Ink and watercolor on paper

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

My mom and I drove to Chadron, Nebraska yesterday to see my grandma. Grandma Kathryn is 96 years old, still drives, climbs a steep set of 13 stairs at least once a week, is sharp as a tack, and eats ice cream for dinner nearly every night. She is awesome!

The stairs that Grandma tackles, lead to her basement where, at one time, an amazing collection lived. The collection was not my grandma’s – it was my grandpa Clyde’s and it contained over 6,000 pens and pencils, mounted to peg boards. When my grandpa passed away, Grandma donated the collection to the local museum and I don’t think I had seen it since.

Yesterday we took a ride down to the museum to check them out. It was so great to see the collection again, along with all of the other old treasures they had there. Day 54’s project is drawings of a few antiques we came across: an old printing press, a cool little toy plane and a trike.
