Top of the Heap!

Edward Gorey
Monday's Riddle painted in the theme this week, reminding us to make good art, and Lizzy's review of The Art of Miss Chew by Patricia Polacco inspired us to nurture our creative spirits. Friday, we are very excited to bring you an interview with Patricia Polacco, and Saturday we look forward to hearing your artful comments on The DMS Wants to Know. The Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop is happening on Fairday's Blog, so be sure to stop by the post and enter for your chance to win a fabulous book prize pack- giveaway ends Sunday, May 19th. Today, we thought it would be fun to spotlight a few of our favorite works of art!


This week's top of the heap: 
Awesome works of art & the artists who created them ~

Fairday & Lizzy: Enjoy!

Water Lilies by Claude Monet

  1. Van Gogh is probably my ultimate favorite. I saw his exhibit at the Met years ago and it was so awe-inspiring to see those great works in person, just inches from the canvas. What a treat!
