Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Miro My Hero
Last weekend Oscar & I worked on a ceramic piece together - we picked it up from firing yesterday. Unintentionally the cup became very surrealist-influenced - very Joan Miro. We talked a bit about the artist & I showed Oscar some paintings when we got home. He was pretty stoked...I mean, Miro is kinda magnetic for kids. I remember my pediatrician's office had a few prints on the waiting room walls & I was fascinated. This morning when I asked Oscar what he wanted he said "something that painter did." I was super excited until it was followed up with "or batman. or a fart." Oh, so cultured we are here. Happy Tuesday! xoxo
