You know how it is. You meet someone in cyberspace---you can't remember exactly how your trajectories crossed, but a connection is made. And so it is that I've appeared on Jean Van't Hul's great blog, The Artful Parent. The interview with photos was posted Monday, March 10th.
Jean wanted to know how I reared my daughters to be creative and to value creativity in others. It was one of my chief goals as a parent, as it is no doubt one of yours, if you are a parent, too. Anyway, I hope you'll check out her blog tomorrow and on the days afterward. Jean's a gifted writer and a devoted mother of adorable Maia. Her blog is full of great info and links and interviews and images and.... all kinds of artful stuff. By the way, one of my sketches will be given away in a drawing there. And also, by the way, Maia will be appearing in my 101 Faces Project in the near future, I hope. Lucky me!
Here are some photos of my daughters' early years as artists-in-the-making:
Cecelia, drawing before she could walk!
Third is a photo of the girls painting together, a few years later.
Last, is a self-portrait by Kate, but it could have just as easily been a portrait of Cecelia.
