Exit through the thrift shop

Every day our daughter seems to learn a new word, or do something unexpected. These little discoveries always amaze me. Most recently, Audrey’s been discovering her artistic side. I love this, since I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. I stopped taking “Art” in grade 6, and I can still only really draw stick people. My wife, on the other hand, is a wondeful water-colourist, so our daughter’s burgeoning talent is obviously being nurtured by her. Or if you believe nature has something to do with it, then you can probably make a case that Banksy is our daughter’s biological father. Mystery solved!

Most of the art seems to be made with found objects, like the kind of stuff you might find in a thrift store. Some of it is pretty abstract.

I found this one stuck on our bathroom door. I'm calling it "Angry Bird".

The artist experimenting with performance art. The next Amanda Palmer, maybe?

A little collage work in the style of Art Hansen.
