One of my middle schools just had a school festival and during that time a bunch of student art work was on display.
There was a whole section of tree art done by 1st graders (7th grade USA) and this one picture particularly stood out for me with it’s vivid contrast of Pink and Green.
This picture is poor quality and taken with my phone but you can get an idea of what it looked like.
Fast forward to a water color painting party with my friends. I decided to copy that painting colors and image because I really admired it. So here’s my version of the tree.
Haven’t tried painting with watercolors in years! Fun experiment.
I’m not sure if I can track down the student who made the original painting since I don’t teach them and the name is really blurred, but if I can I want to tell them their art inspired me.
I bet in a million years they would have never thought the random foreign teacher at their school would like their art so much she would copy it.
