Swans in the City

I'm so far behind with planned blog posts! I have a couple of knitting ones in my head, some photos taken to go with them, but just haven't either time or access to laptop to get them posted.

In the meantime, these are some from a children's art competition in our local shopping centre last week. The theme was "Swans in the City"- the Swan (shopping)Centre is close to the Canal, where swans swim all the time. I think they're beautifully creative. The textures in the one below appealed to me, and the artist incorporated names of shops from the centre.

I particularly like this one, by a 10 year old girl.

The idea of swans even thinking about clocks or time is novel!


  1. Those swans in dresses are priceless. Didn't the kids have a great time with this theme?

    Swans are wonderful birds - if seeming a tad vicious at times. I prefer to think that they just don't know their own strength.

  2. Love the artwork! Simple, funky, stunning!

  3. I think quite a few of those young folk are artists in the making!
    I always loved when our school system displayed art at the local mall. The talent was exceptional.

  4. As you probably know, I love children's artwork and the pictures you snapped make a wonderful collection.

  5. How lovely. It's so encouraging for children to have their artwork and creations displayed, I love the drawing by the 10 year old.
