Troy has been remodeling the dining room throughout the summer;
between chemo treatments, and when he has had enough energy.
Well, those times were few and far between so it has taken all summer.
He is doing the finishing touches this week
just in time for us to set up our school room in there.
We had a little pile of trim and molding pieces the kids were playing with.
So I gave them some wood glue and instructions to build a sculpture.
Of course I reminded the kids about some of the "trash art" we saw at the
American Visionary Art Museum this summer.
They glued and let dry, so they could color it with markers.
Liv made a home, complete with a landscaped yard.
She worked the longest on her sculpture.
George wasn't so convinced his "ship with big gun" needed color.
After all, it was more about function over form.
Virginia's abstract never did get painted because she got punished for something (can't remember) and then we both forgot to finish her project.
That is a normal occurrence around here. Sigh.
All in all, it was a good "trash art" day.
