“Anna B” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub. Anna B is a real person. A young beautiful and gifted artist. Anna B came to my home to assist with a kids craft camp. One of the crafts is painting.

I was teaching Anna a different technique. I was so excited to have her in my home and learning more about her techniques as an artist. A later blog will highlight her personally and her art, but for this post I am sharing this piece.

What the finished piece started as is very different as a finished piece. I was showing her how I bring together colors, using straws to blow, swipes with popsicle sticks, and more with a pallet knife, and no brush strokes. I thought this technique would be easiest for kids age 4-14 and eliminate brushes, water, and a bigger mess.

Teaching art is my greatest joy.

Each child was given a cookies sheet. On the cookie sheet was an 8×10 canvas, straws, plastic forks and popsicle sticks. It is a testament to the gifts that God gives us. We are artists. How we see color and how we imagine the color and how we bring colors together in our own creative ways.

Little squeezy bottles of paints.
No matter what age, the kids took their creative spirits to the canvas. Anna B. there to assist, direct and help.

Now back to to this piece. After showing Anna B. some” of my techniques we could teach the kids on the canvas. I came home after a very long and exhausting day and went right into my studio to decompress. I love teaching art camps but a lot of kids, lots of activities and I needed something quiet to bring me back to balance. I finished this piece which started out as a sampling for a beautiful artist named, “Anna B”.
