I don't even know what to call this, but I made a Mona Lisa where kids can put their face in hers and take a picture.  Our local elementary is having an art show and thought this would be a fun idea.  I offered to paint it.  Took about four hours.  Hopefully it won't get too beat up by the kids, but I imagine it will.







Edit to add: 3 years and this is going strong.  Little bent, but has came out every art show since!  I'm not in charge of the art show anymore.... no more elementary babies!  Undecided .... so if it breaks now they'll have to make their own.

Such a fun idea!
And beautifully excecuted.
You painted it in only four hours? It would have taken me much longer (and it would not have been so beautiful).

The school also wanted a Kandinsky concentric circles stand in.  It's one of the artists the children were studying too.  The kids will have fun using it as a photo op at their art show.
