The Aftermath of Art Can Still be Art





I've posted these photos before on my other blog. They are still among some of my favorites, even though my daughter originally thought they were just weird. I attend church in the country, and we host VBS every year for the kids in the area. I usually teach the crafts class. Last year, after a day of painting with the kids I took all the brushes to the kitchen sink to clean them. When I put all those brushes in the stainless steel sink and saw all those colors, and the reflections of all those colors I had to run back to my class and grab my camera. I don't know that any other photos I've taken have ever been this vivid.

I can understand why you love them—they're great photos! And I love that you teach crafts to kids. I always do too when my three nieces are in the country. :)

Hi Tammy, I like both of these very much and am glad you posted them here. I used to make time to paint some years ago and though I can't do the work you did, I think I just really enjoyed seeing the color on the page or canvas. And seeing it move and come alive. It's cool! And so I have enjoyed seeing your project!
