Last week my husband cut some carrot up for for our 2-year-old. He put them on a plate for her in a crisscross pattern and left her to eat. He went back a few minutes later and she hadn't touched them, so he asked her if she was going to eat them. She replied, "No. That's art now".
This story made me so happy and left me thinking that perhaps my creative influence is rubbing off on her. How else would she know that anything, even food, can be a work of art?
I originally did this illustration for the topic 'Imperfect' a couple of weeks ago but I was prevented from finishing on time. How perfectly imperfect of me.
