“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
Reviving Our Art: #WordlessWednesday
Aarshia, my ten-year-old is down with a flu for twenty-one days now. She spends time making art and craft, reading, playing the piano, sometimes cooking (yes, she made a cake today and even the sweet chilli prawns for supper). Sometimes she watches Citizen Khan with us on Netflix. Or that show on Disney World (did I get the name right? huh!)
The flu was such a spoiler. It arrived just when the winter vacations began, and has continued to linger on. Schools have re-opened, but little Aarshia is holed at home, still recuperating.
But that hasn’t deterred her. She whipped out my little art book the other day and has been zentangling like there is no tomorrow.
Here are two zentangles she and I made, way back in 2015-2016, when we had just stumbled upon the art.
I’m posting these in a bid to revive my love for art and continue to engage in this hobby with my little warrior princess.
