Pre-school artwork, 1970, the Proverbial Apple Tree
Here is a bit of early artwork I did when I was about four or five years old in pre-school in California. It is a crayon transfer from a piece of sandpaper to a piece of cotton bed sheet. I remember doing a few of these because it was made from simple shapes and essentially solid colors. Initially I just drew the tree and grass, but having been encouraged by a teacher, I added the sun, the flower and apples as an afterthought. I keep this on my desk to remind me that even a simple idea, when fleshed out can be inspirational.
