May you never lose your sense of wonder

art for the child inside of us all... may you never lose  your sense of wonder http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2015/07/may-you-never-lose-your-sense-of-wonder.html
Remember the joys of childhood? When rain meant a day at the movies and snow was a school holiday- not bad weather you complained about. Remember the days when the most important things in the world were your two wheeler bike, your best friend, and the ice cream truck? That is the sense of joy and wonder I try to preserve in my artwork and why I love to capture the innocence of animals who never seem to lose their sense of play.

Art that doesn't take itself so seriously

The reason I am obsessed with my current series of artwork that combines my love of representational watercolor with the abstraction of mixed media is that the collage elements keeps the art from getting too serious. For example, in this chick painting, I have the realistic watercolor baby chicks against a backdrop of polka dots, musical notes and words that peek through the violet keystone sky and lace in between their webbed toes.

I spy a bit of lace

This artwork is intended to make you feel happy and you will notice something new each time you look at it. For example, look carefully at the left of the painting and you will notice a bit of aqua lace. → collect the art here

Sense of awe and wonder

Transform your child's room into something magical. These happy little yellow chicks were born in a kindergarten classroom so the kids could marvel at the miracle of life while learning science. You can bring that sense of awe and wonder into your little one's life with this cheery painting full of optimistic orange, soothing teal and patterned fantasy. 

If you secretly yearn for this painting yourself, of course big girls can enjoy it too and know that you will never out grow the wonder years of your imagination. → collect the art here
