Whether they remember or not … the girls have long had a little Scottie dog named Angus in their lives.
When Grace was very small and Kim (her mom) and I started reading to her, I went book shopping and was easily attracted to the amazing art by Marjorie Flack, who wrote and illustrated several stories about Angus.
Now that Cate is starting to read more, she’s taken a new interest in Angus. We read it last night, and tonight she wanted to draw. I love Cate’s use of color (especially her little flower). And, Grace is working on drawing with shapes to build form, as well as creating texture (the black and blue squiggles for fur). It’s not hard to be inspired with amazing art like that of Ms. Flack.
