Artistic Revolution

An artist lives and breathes their work. To create is to live. Like the artist themselves, their work is constantly evolving. One cannot work in the same style, creating the same thing over and over again. They need to grow, to develop, to expand their horizons.

Still the quest for artistic growth can mean a radical departure. A change in style from representational art to abstract impressionism or vice versa can be quite shocking for the viewing public.

Especially their parents.

In Bunny's short artistic career, she has moved from Let's mix all the colors together and see what happens


To her Hamstack period


To a more representational style


I know that she is learning and figuring out how to represent her world, but I miss the Hamstacks.

So cute. Next it will be the very tall and very short stick people. With curly hair....whether anyone has it or not. Maybe even some boopies. ;)

I actually love that first one. Wouldn't it make a beautiful fabric? And of course the hamstacks were classic... But I like the vibrancy of her representational work. Can't wait to see her next "period".

Funny you should do this particular post as Frink and I just had that discussion this morning as I was looking at Bunny's newest creation to put on the wall....

So very cute! I actually think she has a great sense of composition and color arrangement!

Ah, the Bunny hamstacks period. It needs a museum of its own. I love it - great post.

Those hamstacks are pretty incredible.

I really like the third one. So how do you display them in your house? Or do they silently hit the bin? Hope you're having a good week! It's cold and rainy here. Boo hiss.

*clutches chest* I miss the presence of period pieces, enjoy them while you can. As another commenter noted, the lankies are coming next-always a fun time. Best.
