Another surprise piece of artwork surfaced at the end of violin lessons at grandma's. Today it was Sophie's creativity that took advantage of the sibling-lesson-time. She had spent ages with a single pencil crayon drawing tree branches. This is a detail of the tree. I love the tangled randomness of the branches and the way there's a clear sense of three-dimensional space in the overlapping of twigs. And yet there's something quite fractal-like in this art too.

The kids used to do some wonderful weekly art classes, until the teacher got too busy with her own art and schooling to offer them any more. Both Sophie and Noah mentioned today how much they miss them.
