This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Remodel Art

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.

  1. I love the ART!! And I love the AVAM. That place is sooooooooo cool. You reminded me of some artist who earned his "real" living as a house painter and used the leftover paint to create his art. Doggone it I can't find his name in Google, but maybe you know who I'm talking about! Lots of stripes and swirls. :) Love the kitty post, too.
