Through a Child's Eyes


I love the art which children create. It is frequently colorful, detailed and honest. It always puts a smile on my face. I have a young artist friend who truly made my day by drawing a picture of me. This picture has been hanging on my refrigerator so that I can look at it every day and smile. I love her use of color and how she paid attention to detail. Notice the little birds sitting on their nests and the flowers on the bushes. Pink is one of my favorite colors so I love the dress. And I love how she drew me. Tall and slim, with the greatest hairdo and look at that smile on my face ~ it is just like the one I have every time I look at this picture. Thank you, dear artist friend.

Beautiful ! Kid's drawings are the best - they really look like what they see.
I think of you with that same big smile when I see you in my head too. ;)
Happy Saturday !

I will have to take more pictures of what is on the fridge door because that is where my granddaughters' work is kept too.
You look beautiful in that picture!

Nuts in May

Very good work in that picture and quite understandable as to why it made you really happy to receive it too. The refrigerator does make for a great place to display these things too, doesn't it? A good reminder of a child's love and gift of art.

Are you really that slim? Wow! A child's imagination would be good for all of us.
That's a keeper.
