The Ogden school painting so far.
Am I smarter than a 6th Grader? Well, when I started out on this project I thought so. Now I'm not so sure.
It was sort of like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I traveled to this far away beautiful land only to find out that home is where the heart is. A little corny, but a nice lesson to learn on your 50th year.
The Sketch: I never just start painting. I plan out what I'm going to do first and I do that with the sketch for the painting. It's like my road map- It puts the design in my head and I try and not deviate from it much.
Close-ups of the painting so far.
If any of the 6th graders there at the school want to help me out on this painting, send me your ideas or drawings at www.TheArtistAndTheTraveler.org.
