My original plan to have a series of four simple, classic travel-themed drawings for the nursery corner has been pared down to two. I have a new respect and admiration for children’s books illustrators: creating artwork for children that doesn’t look like it was drawn by children is a challenge! My attempts at drawing kites were embarrassing. Until Jax makes his own art to put on display, these two will have to do.
On the other hand, I’ve found a new use for the delightful illustrations in the book of nursery rhymes in French that I found in Paris a year and a half ago: I pulled out the rusty staples, separated the pages, and framed four of my favorites.
