Thursday Report

When I looked at the calendar the other day it occurred to me that exactly one year ago I was in Ensenada, Mexico with a group of artists. It was an art cruise and the day the ship pulled into the port me and a group of women from Portland, OR jumped on the first shuttle and made our way into the lively town. There were lots of American tourists and many cheerful, helpful shopkeepers. The pictures above and below are of a huge two story shop jam packed with lots of art from local artists that we stopped in. I loved the colors and there was so much inspiration everywhere. Click on the photos to see the details.

Fast forward to March 2009 and I'm back at home with no where to go. However, I'm participating in an experiment, if that's what you want to call it, that has to do with seeing things/life through the eyes of a child. In practicing this exercise, I discovered an interesting connection that you can read about below by clicking on the picture. Hint: It has to do with children and artists.

This is probably going to be my last journal entry on "the child." It's been an interesting journey and I think I have child-like behavior when it comes to art related things. I've seen children get very happy when they're working on art projects and I seem to get that way too!

Linda, I love, LOVE both journal pages. How true about the artist and the child. I'm so glad you decided to participate in the Challenge. It was fun to see things through YOUR Child's EYES.
Thanks for sharing the tour and your journal pages with us. What a treat. :)Messyhandsbea
