Star & Dandelion




As you all ought to know, I have two charming kids, and to protect the innocent, we'll call the oldest child star and the youngest dandelion. On frequent occasion, my interest in art gets taken out on them. It happened again not long ago. Matthew showed me a link to a neat little webpage where you can make a simulated Pollock "drip painting" just by waving the mouse over the formerly blank canvas--err, screen. Of course, I immediately set the Jr.s down to try it. Neither one is a very good fake Pollock, but both are pretty good additions to Star and Dandelion's art escapades. Can you guess who did which painting?

Star did the top one with a theme of purple and Dandelion did the bottom one with a theme of how much can I get on the paper. No, Star did the bottom one with I need to express more in a small place and Dandelion did the top one with how does this really work, no I really do not want to do this.

I think Star did the top and Dandelion did the bottom.

i think star did the bottom one because dandelion woudlve been confused about what she was doing and would end up putting less on the 'canvas'. star would've taken more action.

I agree with Suz. Star did the bottom and Dandelion did the top.
