So, recently Niece #1 was over and we were doing the craftsy thing and she pounded out this painting in like an hour and a half.
This was based on a photograph from one of our art books, Mary Ellen Mark's Turkish Schoolgirl.
So this raised the interesting question -- did Niece #1 match the original colors of Mark's photograph? I spent a while trying to find the color "original" of the photograph on line, before running into a description of Mark as being noted for her black and white portraiture. Oh, right.
We're looking for a right-sized frame, but in the meantime we've got it hanging on the fridge like N#1 was our second grade daughter or something.
