Power Lines

This young artist was an energetic painter working with a blue and yellow palette to create rich shades of green and diligently covering the paper.
For his third painting, he moved to making marks in the paint with popsicle sticks.
Then moved to using a blue pastel to carefully add power lines, moving throughout the page and connecting back to each other in careful loops.
Finally, he added additional paint over the power lines. Mom shared that the family lost power for 16 hours in the snow storm so power lines were clearly an important subject of conversation at home and now their importance is also recorded in this painting.
