Up until recently Little Man has been master of abstract art.
I even taught him to say "it's abstract"
when asked what his paintings were.
Last week, though, he surprised me
with a whole series of decidedly un-abstract art.
The following are some of his mixed media pieces.
(paint and marker on paper)
"just weird creatures"
"a big daddy hippopotamus"
mama and baby hippopotamus
surrounded by grass, rainbow, and flying birds
of course he had to make at least one abstract piece
"all sorts of stuff"
(we were experimenting with different ways of applying the paint:
q-tips, sponges, toothpicks, and cotton balls)
"a lion lying down"
