Ava Thursday: Mommy and Daddy with car
Ava says that this is Mommy and Daddy getting in the car to look for Ava - although it looks as if Ava may be in the house, anyway (see her silhouette up in the window). Notice that there are word balloons next to Mommy and me. I'm not sure where she got this, but the one thing I've noticed about the way Ava draws is that she pays close attention to anything that you draw if you draw with her. I think I drew a character saying something one time, with an accompanying word balloon, and Ava asked me what that was. She's now picked up on the fact that if one of her characters say anything, then they must have a word balloon. The house and car are objects that she's picked up from her very talented cousin, Matt. When Matt and his sister, Naomi, came to visit during the holidays, Ava sat on the floor with Matt and drew page after page of people, houses, cars and alien spaceships. It was quite an experience for my girl. Ava produced some very elaborate and very creative artwork for several days after her cousins' visit. Expect to see more of this artwork soon!
