Ava Thursday: Happy Halloween!


Yes, I know, this is February but this drawing by Ava back on 27 October 2004 was too priceless for me to wait any longer in posting. I love this one, as there's so much energy in how Ava drew the face and how the different lengths of the arms convey action. Ava tells me that this is her saying, "Happy Halloween!" and you can just sense how much she loved the holiday (is it an official holiday?).

And for the record, she went as Cinderella. Ezra was Gus Gus, the mouse. Quite the cute couple, I must say. Maybe I'll post a pic of the two later on.

  1. Another classic! Beautiful! Halloween is such a grand holiday for kids. I remember my best Halloween was when I was able to cobble together a Han Solo costume. It didn't look much like Han Solo actually but at least I had the gun--which really was the most important part.

    Anyway, beautiful stuff!

  2. I second what James said. What a great drawing! If there is a PEANUTS special involved with it, I love that holiday, so Halloween is one of my favorites. Try as I may though, I can never seem to come up with a great halloween costume... this year, I may look into dressing up as Ava's "Happy Halloween" illustration.

  3. Yes, post a picture! That is priceless! I was a clown my first Halloween and I never outdid that cuteness. And the arms in her drawing are wonderful.

  4. i saw one of the best halloween costumes this past year. A college student mind you, dressed in all black and had a white sign around his neck saying "I am a cookie sheet" I found it to be quite ammusing.

  10. I love children's drawings, they are so uninhibited by the idea of HOW things are supposed to be. From the details in this drawing, the Goodenough Draw a Man test would tell you your daughter is quite intelligent.

    Halloween is my favorite holiday. I miss my kids being young enough to go out trick or treating, but they all dress up at the high school on Halloween.
