From Dad (Tatsputin): I fly out of state to work 10 days out of each month. When I go, the kids give me pictures they’ve drawn. I color them on the plane and give the pictures back to them when I return. Nothing fancy. The kids love them. WE LOVE THEM!
“Barred rock and chick from my daughter. It was her idea for it to be a barred rock. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper”
“On my next trip my 6 yr old son wanted to get in on the act. This time they both drew me up something. Same colored pencils, this time on 8×10 paper”.
“After a few months, I remembered about coloring the previous drawing and asked my daughter to draw me another one for my trip. Also colored with prismas and this time on a piece of paper from a small watercolor pad. Apparently it’s ok to go on a plane with dozens of sharpened pencils”.
“I got in trouble for this one. Apparently she wasn’t supposed to have a red shirt. I had to claim artistic license with my contribution and that was that. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper”.
“Uh Oh! Looks like mom wants the kids to draw some chickens for her birthday to decorate her kitchen. This one is an araucana from my son. These I did while at home. Colored pencils on 8×10 paper”.

What is Color:
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them.
To see color, you have to have light. When light shines on an object some colors bounce off the object and others are absorbed by it. Our eyes only see the colors that are bounced off or reflected.
The sun’s rays contain all the colors of the rainbow mixed together. This mixture is known as white light. When white light strikes a white crayon or marker barrel, it appears white to us because it absorbs no color and reflects all color equally. A black crayon or marker cap absorbs all colors equally and reflects none, so it looks black to us. While artists consider black a color, scientists do not because black is the absence of all color.
All light rays contain color. Light is made of electromagnetic waves. These waves spread out from any light source, such as the sun. Light waves travel at tremendous speed (186,000 miles or 300,000 kilometers per second). Different colors have different wavelengths, which is the distance between corresponding parts of two of the waves. The longest wavelength of light that humans can see is red. The shortest is violet. Ultraviolet has an even shorter wavelength, but humans cannot see it. Some birds and bees can see ultraviolet light. Infrared has a longer wavelength than red light, and humans can not see this light but can feel the heat infrared generates. (from Crayola.com)
