Yesterday she was doing some finger painting. Basically she was using her index finger as a brush and painted a flower. So I asked her, "why don't you use a brush, ashu?" Pat came the reply, "Because i want to feel the paint, Amma!" I rest my case.
I don't have her doodles pre 2007. Below is circa July 2007 when the artist was just over two years old and was still pronouncing boat as boot. One of the artists first doodle after the artist moved to live in Switzerland. Those were the periods where the artist doodled first and then based on the outcome, named the art.
Without further ado, presenting the first exhibit.
1. Das Boot.
The below two are early 2008. 2. Octopus and 3. Snake respectively as is obvious.
The next ones are late 2008. A very struggling period for the artist since she became a big sister and was forced to draw stick figures in pairs.
4. The Unhappy Stick Figures.
5. My Sister's Balloon Keeper.
6. Resigned To Her Fate.
8. The Astro Nut.
12. The Brat.
Later part of 2009 brought a sudden difference in the artists strokes and she comfortably settled in these patterns. So much so that the artists mother can now recognize her daughters
crap doodle from the 20 other pieces of crap doodles the school insists on displaying!
13. We are a Happy Family.
Currently the artist has almost abandonded her doodle board medium and moved on to paper. Her mother is running out of storage space. So please contact her by email for trade enquiries and save the rain forest!
