Tomorrow is mother's day in England. Our children never know what to do. Should they celebrate me on the English day or the American day? I guess Hudson decided my big day would be tomorrow. My reward for being his mother was what every mail art mum would want - mail art!
I thought it would be interesting to trace Hudson's artistic roots as I take at least a bit of credit for who he is today.. And they say scientists and artists share playfulness and that drive to experiment.
When we moved to Singapore Hudson was a year old. I was concerned that in pristine Singapore Hudson began his art education so I set up 'painting class'. We sang 'Willoghby wallaby woo' and 'if you're happy and you know it walk on the triangle', painted, built things, ate play dough, etc, with a group of 8-10 mothers and toddlers once or twice or even four times a week in my living room.
Not convinced that painting class woud be enough, knowing that Hudson needed to see that men are artists too, Jane and I encouraged Pamela and our husbands to bring our children together to make things
So, you can imagine my delight when Hudson's mother's day mailart arrived today!
