I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and enjoyed the festivities
and got all that you wished for from Santa.
We had the pleasure of the company of our nephew and niece
again over the past few days
and following on from my previous post where
Chloe created her own She-Art girl, this time, Aaron (aged 8)
got to do his very own version - a He-Art boy!
Aaron is not afraid to show his feminine side and chose
very glittery paper to dress his boy - he was going for
a football outfit - hence the pink shiny shorts!
His canvas started off with a variety of map pieces from
an old Atlas, then a combination of acrylic paints and mica sprays,
stencilling through sequin waste and using bottle tops etc.
(he did get very messy!)
Aaron chose the words
"Face Your Fears Not Your Tears"
which is a saying he's been bandying about
ever since visiting the
Adventure Island amusment park at Southend-On-Sea
and watching a roller coaster called 'Rage'
which he's too young to ride on at the moment.
I think those words were the perfect finishing touch
to his canvas and we both loved what he achieved.
So there it is - "He-Art" or Yeeehaa as we were calling it - lol.
Thanks for looking :)
