daughter started a big commission :
paintings on the windows of all the class rooms
of the school her children attend (ed)
It is the same school where I've worked happily
all the years we lived in this village
untill I retired in '07
Painting on the windows was something I did
when we needed illustrations
for the themes that we were working along in our group
(age 4 - 6)
After I retired my old collegues
asked (on a regular basis) to help out again with it
This summer the school had a major refurbishment :
ALL the windows (and the roof)
That meant of course that all the window paintings
that were still there, were gone !!!
But this time it's the next generation
that is willing to do the (big) work !
(and I'm allowed to help her)
On Monday we started with the outline
on four windows, today we started in colour.
(and outside the sheep are keeping the grass short !)
(hmmmm ... I hate that colour they chose for the roof
and you can see that not all the windows are there yet ...
neither is the front door !!!)
While daughter had an early start,
I came a bit later and started in the second class room
(the design is inspired by the illustrations of Dagmar Stam
and the drawings I made myself during all those years at school)
At the end of the morning daughter could almost start on the back ground ...
and the little one
(not at school yet ... for he's only 3 years and 4 months)
loved to be in the classroom, watch the bigger children ...
and his mum painting.
Late in the afternoon we left for today, not yet finished ...
To be continued !
