I am one of those kinds of parents that is comfortable in the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing, so I tend to let my kids figure things out on their own. As a result, they are rather tech savvy. My daughter, at age 2, is actually the one who showed me how to make categories on my (now her) iPad. She also showed me how to reset apps because her daddy showed her how. Mind you, she’s still hesitant to use the potty, but knows how to download apps. And now, at age 3, she has mastered my digital camera. Whenever she gets the inclination, she grabs the camera and takes some pretty good pictures. So here is what life in my house looks like at 36 inches tall…
This is one of those decoratove rocks in a bowl that go on coffee tables. She has clearly taken it out of the bowl to create art.
This is most of her daddy.
This one’s my favorite – Just crayons
Some self portraiture.
She arranged these on the floor for the sole purpose of taking the picture.
This is an interesting perspective shot of a lap desk with graffiti. I like the use of positive and negative space…which is what I say when I am trying to act like I know what I’m talking about when it comes to art.
Just thought I’d share.
What a brilliant artist. I’m especially a fan of the “Lap Desk, in Blue” piece. The shallow depth of field says, “this thing in the foreground… it’s close to me. But that thing in the background… that’s far from me.” Whether she’s expressing this notion literally or figuratively (or both) is a question I’ll be wrestling with for weeks to come.
Bravo, Jaia. Bra-vo.
