Ava Thursday: She has a boo-boo
I am so digging this drawing. As with all of Ava's drawings, there's a story here, albeit a short one. When I asked her to tell me about this drawing, she said, "She has a boo-boo!" That's it.
I love the composition, where we see only the bottom half of the subject. No need to see the girl's face or arms -- just the main point of focus: the band-aid on her knee. And don't you just love the sneakers? I do too.
There's something in this drawing that really appeals to me. The way Ava drew the dress down from off the top of the page, and how the legs come straight down -- I dunno, there's just something about the execution of this that makes me realize just how proud I am of my daughter. Yes, I am the stereotypical Proud Father, but I think I have every right to proudly showcase my girl's artwork to as many people as I can. She is my girl. My one and only Ava, with whom I share a special bond. She is like no other, and I am so happy to have her in my life.
