A “Misunderstood Artist” or a disastrous attempt at detail?

Children have a mind that has not yet been indelibly marked by the world they live in. This is what fascinates me when I talk to them. They come up with fearless new proposals while older brains – like mine- tend to go with tried and tested designs, calling the process “experience”. When I look back at some of my own youthful experiments with art and creativity, I smile – or laugh. What I wouldn’t give to return to the innocence of my childhood, to the time I believed I was a misunderstood artist – a bit like Michael Angelo.

Below is a 3 minute video of one such incident from my life. I am sure everyone has at least one, if not more, similar experience.

    • Thank you, but I understand why she didn’t see a page of bricks as a “star-worthy” piece of art. 😊

  1. Children’s art is free from inhibition. Always encourage them in their pursuits, it means a lot to them. You turned out to be a great artist.👍🏻
