The Folkart of Mary Paulsen.

Windows painted from the back to the front!

Mary has a unique style – painting from the back of the glass panes to the front so that it looks as if it were painted on the front of the glass pane!

The quilt work look-alike painting!

Room after room after room after room!
Every bit of space is used to display the Folkart!

I think someday this all will be very valuable FOLKART!

Papa’s World – Arts – Crafts and Grandkids -oh my!

Cassidy – our little artist.

We had lists of things to see and do while they were here for twelve days!

The downtime was also on those lists and arts and crafts for each of them.

Keeping three kids on the go – with rest times.

Bode and the crafts he made – along with his stuffed shark.

While he did the crafts by himself – we had to read a lot of the instructions to him so he would understand them. He will be in second grade in the fall.

He did very well and made the contraption to pick up items from the floor.

Taylor with her crafts – the picture frames they all picked out the colors.

She would much more like to ride a horse but she was game and made the things you see here

even stitching the leather notepad holder.

She is our reader – books and books – always reading.

This is Cassidy’s element – she loves her arts and crafts!

She is so talented – making things – she made the cards – painted the switch plate covers –

painted rocks and copied the American flag that President Bush painted – exactly like he did.

Cassidy’s drawing with a pencil.

Cassidy’s other little girl drawing.

The list was long – but downtime was important and it showed in the arts and crafts.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – our Cassidy – seems she is an ARTIST!

Cassidy – calls her MorMor ( Sherry) every week – or texts her – whom she adores.

While I have known she has the ability to create – it surprised me just how well she can draw.

Sherry saw a picture on social media of an American flag painted by President Bush –

for the celebration of July 4th.

I guess he just did it in a few moments – as he also is a good artist.

She asked Cassidy if she could do the same thing by looking at the picture!

Cassidy’s painting after seeing the picture of President Bush painting.

It looks just like his!

She has a unique ability to look at something and reproduce it!

A few down days and she sat and started drawing!

No one bothers her and she is very quiet – only a pencil and paper.

She sat at the counter with her IPAD – and watched a video of this drawing and reproduced it on a larger scale.
She produced the drawing – and showed it to me – I was just struct at how good she actually is!

She is her own self – and a quiet sweetheart.

Her third picture – all three we are going to have framed – she is only eleven years old!

She has a focus on detail – a sense of shade – these are all just penciled drawings.

I showed them to her mother and I think she needs to pursue this talent.

“OUR CASSIDY – SEEMS SHE IS AN ARTIST”!

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
Scattered about over the acres and acres of the park – hundreds of bronze statues – depicting life of the world – by famous artists – some bigger than life – beautiful to see – and a story behind each one!
A building of hundreds of bronze statues – faces – animals – marble – stone – behold the beauty and capture the imagination of ones soul.
Carved out of wood – almost real like – exceptional artistic work.
Another work by the same artist – carved out of wood!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – I shall continue in the next blog with our walking tour.
