Music and Art

Sophie's art assignment for the past week was to take some music and draw/paint what ever comes to mind while to listen.  So one night while the boys were off with their dad I put on a Chopin CD and gave Sophie a big piece of paper and she started to draw.
At first she didn't know what to draw but soon started thinking of different things. She listened to the entire CD and had a few small drawings scattered about her page.

Here is Pan playing his flute in a little forest.
an underwater castle,
And of course there was a cat.  Sophie explained that the cat was looking out the widow wishing to go out but it was raining.

After listening for a good long time I gave her a fresh page and got out the watercolors. She picked one of her images and painted it.

I am not surprised it was the one of the cat.

That was a good art assignment! Sophie is becoming a good artist, and I'm glad that she chose to make her cat gray!
