Ava Thursday: Tickling the Sun


Spring is in full bloom here in Atlanta, and so I found this wonderful little drawing by Ava in this one sketchbook she has with a couple of neato drawings dispersed throughout. This drawing is interesting to note because it was drawn with a ball-point pen. She's never really drawn with a pen like that before, but it looks like she got the hang of it. She then colored the scene with crayons, natch. I believe this was done earlier this year or late last year. Not sure which.

Some nice touches: I like the very detailed flowers there on the ground, and the long long long arm on the other person, who, I've been told by Ava, is me. She said that I'm trying to touch the sun. I asked her why and she gave her pat answer for questions like these: "'Cause it's fun." She then said, "You're trying to tickle the sun!"

  3. Cute. I've been meaning to put up some of Brighton's work up too. Not a lot of flowers though...mostly things with wheels and wings. :)

  4. The way I see it, you can't go wrong with kid's drawings. Something pure about them.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that that's Ezra driving the car there. You can barely see him.
