Now a bit of French contemporary art from Dordogne

This page is currently being updated.

Created in Périgord Blanc, Dordogne ... By our very own ... Five year old!

Do we just have a busy little contemporary artist in our household? Or in her own words "daddy... am i prolific?" And also "daddy... when I get older can I stay at home like you or do I have to go to work like mummy". Or am I just trying to find something in our daughters paintings, (other than me being a very proud daddy?).

Anyway who cares... my only role is to set up, and of course... clean up. To ask her what colours she wants and put them out, what tools she wants... ponges, bwushes, wrollers (toddler talk) etc and get them out for her. Boooooom and off she goes, I can barely keep up. "okay daddy, I'm finished - (shouting very loudly) NEXT". I have barely washed a cup or a pan and Ericka will be home from proper work!

I tried to emulate her fast and loose style and you can see the results in a photo below. Like most of my canvases, I will probably donate it to GG for her to overpaint on. I really do like her choice of colours and the textures she manages to achieve.

This is her latest contemporary creation (19/10/18), before turning six years old. After previously getting in a right mess with acrylics (they are now "interdit", French for forbidden) - well for just now anyway. This colourfull piece has been created with poster paints on a 51cm x 41cm or 20 inch x 16 inch canvas, applied with sponges, brushes and of course fingers and hands (when I was washing up)! It still needs a little varnish to protect it and I think a frame will really make it stand out.

... and now six.
