Time to grow


Hope you're having a lovely weekend. Here in Sweden we've been enjoying a Royal wedding, the happy couple was adorable. I've been happily tucked away in the crafty corner getting inky fingers, occasionally checking the wedding at TV. Simple joys of life! And a nice hideaway when pollen levels are high outdoors :)

Challenges:
Kim Dellow's Art It Friday: Show you're face
Moo Mania: Anything Goes  (second entry)
Art Journal Journey: Masculine/Feminine
Paint Party Friday


Materials used:
Liquitex gesso, acrylic pens and paint, Derwent watercolour and charcoal pens, Pin ball point pen

One of my classes had a discussion about male and female, like can a girl wear her hair short?! I believe our youngsters need to have a lot of patience to become and to show who they really are when they meet the world, so that different opinions don't weigh them down.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  3. What you've created here is wonderful and so thoughtful too.
    Young people have lots of challenges growing up in these times of being so connected with access to so much.
    A royal wedding sounds lovely.

  13. Beautiful painting & important theme! I'm always grateful to meet a gender sensitive teacher - that's still way too rare in Finland.
