Artist of the Week: Mountain

In my continuing saga of pruning down some of the school papers around here I unearthed a lovely mixed media by Jake.

Larry took this picture of Jake last weekend as they were heading to the soccer field. It is a very appropriate pose when viewed with this week’s artwork and without further ado here is Jake’s “A Mountain Hike.”

He made it last year in art class; it is primarily a watercolor with a small amount of crayon and pencil for the details. It is a fairly large piece, 12 X 14 inches and is much too big for my scanner, hence the photograph. It’s a bit battered and wrinkled from the bus ride home, but it did survive.

I like all the little people in the picture hiking about the mountain and adding little dots of color. Jake had completely forgotten about it until I unearthed it from the pile. He was quite impressed with his handy work and rightly so.
