The spontaneous creativity of an eleven-year-old

Eleven year old Isabel Fawcett, visiting from Ecuador, created an art work of her own this afternoon when she drew a full-sized image of the telephone box using freshly mown grass-cuttings from the green. Her original intention had been to trace the outline of a car for her younger sister, but she realised that what she had begun reminded her of the Gallery on the Green, and adapted her design accordingly.

As a finishing touch she incorporated the word TELEPHONE using cotton wool for better visibility....and all of this spontaneously and without any supervision whatsoever.

It's a pity my photographs don't fully do justice to the piece, but well done Isabel for such an imaginative interpretation.
