'May The Force Be With You'
10" x 14" watercolor on Arches 140 lb. cold pressed paper
This is number three in the Work of Childhood series
One benefit of being a mom to three boys and having a very manly husband too is that my house is usually filled with very. . . 'boy-type' things. Like super heroes, action figures, Nerf gun battles, lightsaber fights, things like that.
Maybe some moms would not see that as a bonus. But me? Well, I was the kid who loved He-Man just as much as She-ra and got up early on Saturday mornings to watch the latest X-men cartoon.
There, I've done it. I've suppressed my inner dork long enough and can hide it no longer! Confession: I have a thing for super heroes. Cool gadgets, tricked out cars and hovercrafts, mutant powers (speaking of which, the new X-men movie, First Class is completely AWESOME!). I love em all.
And when the last Star Wars movie came out I was the one who had to talk my husband into going to see it.
Don't look at me like that. I mean, come on, it was the making of Darth Vader! Epic coolness!
But I digress. This painting was the result of a sunlight filled morning and my middle child playing with his lightsaber and wearing a hoodie. He looked like a Jedi (or a Sith, but let's hope not!) in training and I thought it would make a great addition to my Work of Childhood series.
Imagination. Can't get much better than that for childhood work now can you?
Have a great day everyone and. . . may the force be with you! :)
