Ava Thursday: Easter Egg Hunt
(Please click to view larger.)
With Easter just around the corner, how about a nice Easter Egg Hunt drawn by your friendly-neighborhood Ava-girl? And to show you just how much Ava is into Easter, she drew this about two weeks ago. No lie. It's been taped up to the back of our front door ever since, a gentle reminder to the all-seeing, all-knowing Easter Bunny that chocolates and candies better be in full force come Easter Sunday. Actually, Ava's not that pushy when it comes to candy-driven events and holidays, but whenever I look up at the door, I can't help but get this sense of urgency, you know?
A couple of interesting things about this drawing: for one thing, it's big. Like 11x14 inches big. Don't ask me where she got such a large piece of paper because I didn't even know that we had such a thing lying around the house. Another thing, I love the way that she's drawn little motion dashes for one of the bunnies at the bottom of the page there to show that it's hopping. I don't recall ever drawing dashes like that for her before, so I'm curious as to where she got the idea. I also love all the smiley faces -- wouldn't you just love to hang out in a place where everything has a smiley face? In Easter Worlds like this one, everything must be happy and show it, of course.
One of my favorite parts to this drawing is the little girl reaching up to get the egg out of the tree. Subtle things like that bring a smile to my face every time.
Here's to a wonderful Easter to you and yours.
