Ava Thursday: Going to Mema's house
Click for closer look!
Since Ava got back from visiting her grandparents, I thought I'd post a drawing that she had done back in January of this year, that seems appropriate. It's quite an elaborate piece, and it's actually on the backside of another drawing that I've posted earlier. This was post-cousin Matt visit, so there's certainly some details going on here.
Ava tells me that she and I are going to Mema's house (Andrea's mom) in a car, and that there are cats around and a squirrel, too. There are trees lining the road, all the way up to the house, as Mema and Pawpaw wait for us to arrive. The squirrel is just to the left of the car, with a nut. Looks like he's putting it in the tree there. There's also a bee flying around, as well.
I really love how Ava drew the car, as well as the way she drew the cats. The trees alongside the road are a nice touch, as I'm sure that that's what she remembers when she goes and visits her grandparents. It's what she sees outside her window the entire trip (we drive up to Illinois each time we visit). What is especially cool for me to see here is her use of perspective, as the road seems to go back in space, all the way up the page. The house looks very far away, and Ava drew the road getting smaller, it seems. Not sure what that that bizarre contraption is on top of the car. Antennae, perhaps? Looks cool, though.
