Laura tips her hand

Waiting for Laura, after school, to drop her at art class.
Beautiful day, far too cold.



This is a school art project I've heard much about.
Illuminated manuscript, on finest brown wrapping paper.
Laura used a quilt pattern as the letter background,
framed it out with snakes, and lots of grass.
Pretty good.


This was my Christmas present, presented rolled up, 
so it's held down by sewing weights in order to take the picture.
We bought a frame tonight.


When I went in to retrieve Laura tonight,
Mrs. P wondered if I'd seen the bracelet, 
Laura's assignment over her two week vacation to draw something of her own.
No, I had not.



"In future," Mrs. P said, if Laura says there is something she can't do,
I'l just say 'Remember the bracelet?'"

Next week Mrs. P is going to show her how to mount pictures and protect them with tissue.
Good idea. The portfolio grows.

  9. Wow. The effort expended to get Laura to those art classes was definitely worth it.
    She could give those monks a run for their money!

    1. A year ago I gave her a Rima Staines calendar; it's the sort of stuff she was drawing then. I started the lessons because she needed technical direction.
