The Magic Age Original Oil by Margaret Aycock
Please forgive me... I have been soooo busy lately trying to sell a house, do my taxes and work on a zoning issue with my studio that my only time for painting is my class time. I have been working for quite some time on this painting with my adult class. I think we started on this around Christmas and I think I can safely say that it is done ( you never know though... it grew marbles only today! ) Anyways this started as a thought.... The Magical time of childhood when you can create a house in the jungle with tv trays and sheets. A box can fly you to the moon. If you are fortunate enough to have a parent who loves to read to you, why whole new worlds open up. This painting is full of things that sparked my own imagination as a child. See if you can find some from your own childhood. I just put this on ebay today but I will probably enter it into a show or two as I really like it a lot and it is a small break from business as usual for me.
