In fact it's safe to say it's been a lifelong passion of mine.
Now this isn't a grandiose statement … I've actually got the photographic proof to back it up!
Here I am at two years of age.
And again … there's a definite pattern emerging here.
Of course I did have some other interests at two … like hijacking other people's birthday candles.
So it's clear to see that even as a small child nothing made me more happy than a pencil and a clean piece of paper … and nothing's changed.
Here's the latest additions to my sketchbook … all done at the cost of my housework of course!
I've been tinkering with my watercolours.
I've dallied with my pastels.
And I threw in an acrylic on canvas … just for the fun of it!!
Is it any wonder that the floors are filthy and I can never find the time to update this blog??
Great job, and at the end of the day, way more important than dumb old chores! Adorable baby pics btw.ReplyDelete
I agree 100% :0)Delete
You are very talented and advanced in all these media, Jo! And the best part for me, I can feel that you are inspired, I feel the heart in your creations. Your images make me smile!ReplyDelete
Your baby photos are adorable, and you remind me my daughter - she started drawing since about 2. For a few years, she carried notebooks and pencils everywhere we went!
Thank you Natalia … that's a lovely compliment :0)Delete
Each piece has captured a strong ambiance. Beautiful work!ReplyDelete
Never mind the floors - there's art that needs doing.
Too true :0)Delete
When you can spend time dallying with a sketch book and paint, pencils, pastels etc....why do housework?ReplyDelete
Great photos of you when you were younger, what fun to think you have been an artist since you were little! ;-)
It somehow confirms that I'm meant to do it … which excuses the lack of housework a little ;0)Delete
You were an adorable baby! Love these old photos and your art, too! xReplyDelete
A girl after my own heart! Housework can wait when there's something much more fulfilling to do.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos...just think of how much art you must have produced since then. x
I have a habit of doing a quick doodle in the steam on the shower screen every time I'm in there … so at least one a day, every day :0)Delete
Oh Little Jo. Gosh you were/are the cutest! Your art has such a sweet sensibility. Screw housework. This is Life Work!ReplyDelete
Hear, hear :0)Delete
Awwww! You were such a sweet little artist! And you've grown up to be a very good one - Buster, the self portrait and seascape are fabulous. xxxReplyDelete
Thanks Curtise :0)Delete
I love your self portrait and Busters one, and of course the lighthouse painting!!! You so do have a talent!! Must say you have always been rather cute, love old childhood photos. With your artistic skills and your gift for writing poetry, you have a book in the making. Sod the housework, make that book.ReplyDelete
I'd love to write a book … but would anyone pay to read it ;0)Delete
Aren't you a cutie vanooti! Draw till you drop I say. Great stuff.ReplyDelete
Haha … thanks ... I think I will :0)Delete
Oh your toddler photo's are so adorable! the housework always needs doing, sod it off - your beautiful artwork is far more important, I really do enjoy looking at your pieces, you have an incredible talent x x xReplyDelete
Thank you Sandra … you are too kind to me :0)Delete
