Folk Art Fusion: Americana: Learn to Draw and Paint Charming American Folk Art With a Colorful, Modern Twist

5 of 5 stars

What we did not notice when we requested this book for review, was that it was an instructional book. Disappointed for a second, we pondered the possibilities. Then, we liked the idea.

When we got into the book, we liked the idea even more.

It's not that we were not born into an artist-inducing family, because we were. However, we discovered after taking an eight-grade art class that, unless we worked on this talent, as have the other McDonald's, we would never be as good as them. This tired us. Hence, we never pursued it.

Laforme actually shows you how to create Folk Art creations! This is a beautiful book. Aesthetic in every manner.
