Early Paintings

February 2, 2008

Each of my daughters brought artwork home from nursery school. I framed some of their pieces and saved a stack. Each girl’s work was different in style. Caroline had a good sense of space and her markings never appeared randomly placed.
Jeanne was spontaneous and there was less structure in her paintings. Mary B’s paintings were all narratives – or was her very earliest work lost?

These childhood paintings were not well cared for. We found them in the garage, brown and covered with mildew. However, I think some of their vibrancy is preserved in these photos. The actual paintings fell in with the trash and I tell myself it’s OK not to save absolutely everything.
