Painting Old Toys
This is the second in a series of four paintings I plan to do which incorporate old fashioned toys. I think it's especially important to be aware of what our children play with today, considering all the recent toys that have been recalled because they contain lead. Sometimes the safest toys are the oldest and the most basic; they require a child to use her imagination and provide security in a world that is increasingly reliant on technology. I don't know about you, but my children quickly tire of toys that require batteries but certain stuffed animals and some building blocks are used over and over again.
