At the Van Gogh exhibition
Aviva and her friend Alma and I went to the Van Gogh exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel.
They loved most of the landscapes, but in the end sat down in front of "Marguerite Gachet at the Piano".
Here's what Aviva drew.

Aviva is the one in the striped shirt.

Nice! Didn't know you could draw too.
Thurberrific. I hope you save your sketches (I'd frame 'em). Love the image of the girls quietly drawing away, ignoring the crowds. My favorite is the second, because it's such a neat image of Aviva and her friend, though the bits of color in the third are wonderful too.
I demand more pictures on a regular basis!
Yes, I agree, more (visual) art! These are really nice.
I'm impressed with Aviva's rendition of the painting. She has all the essential things right -- the colors, the feeling -- and adds her own whimsical idea of Marguerite's personality.
You should do this more often. A very valuable part of my education was Saturday mornings at the Cleveland Museum of Art with my camp stool, basket of crayons, and newsprint -- choosing some great painting to copy, and learning more than any art class could teach!
All the drawings are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing them.
I love the layers - drawings of girls making drawings of a drawing!
I love that little-kid mindset that makes them draw things (people, animals) with a big juicy smile.
You have always been an extraordinary artist. Our home is full of your sculpture and I look at it all the time. Sometime in your life you should take time of and sculpt, draw paint, whatever.
