Ava Thursday: Runny noses

As for our sweet little artist and her doodle for the day, this was a drawing she did some time ago, maybe when she was 2 1/2. She was on this head kick, where she would draw heads all the time. The way she drew them was always the same: circle for the head first, then the circles for the eyes and nose. Line for the mouth next, and then she'd scribble in the hair and color in the features. Occasionally, she'd add some details at this stage, and here, she drew lines coming from the noses of two of her subjects, denoting runny noses. From left to right, this is Nani (my mom), Naomi and Ava (with runny noses), and Matt. Naomi and Matt are Ava's much-adored cousins who live in Indiana.


  1. Hahaha! That's so adorable! I am a bit lost on my first glimpse on Ava's early drawings but thanks for the detailed description, Ward!

  2. How adorable is that? Thanks for sharing this.

  3. It's amazing to see the contrast between this and her more recent drawings. It's interesting how young she started adding her creative little details in at.
