My true Passion

Just waiting for me to color it.
Elementary school art class
Mrs. George teaching the color wheel
Blue and yellow make green
Not just crayons, markers and paint too
New mediums - clay, paper and even canvas
Bring my creations home to mom
Smiles and hugs, Oooos and Ahhhs
Hang it on the fridge for everyone to see.

Drawing, sketching, blending, shading
Mr. Crawford opening eyes, encouraging ideas
New pencils – 1B, 2B, 3B, 4B, HB
