bird's nest, crows at sunset, or...

nash's masterpiece 12.2

nash colored this today. i promptly hung it on the fridge, not really looking at it. then i walked by and it caught my eye. and i can't stop staring at it. maybe it's because it's the first thing he's drawn that isn't pure chaos. there's some order here, there is a limited color-scheme, there's motion, there is good use of positive and negative space... i don't want to over-analyze my three-year old's art, but i will say i am in love with this "piece." may it be the first of many!

thanks to emmy for the art box-this boy is putting it to good use!

p.s. since high school i've dreamed of having a big white wall in my home with nothing but my children's art displayed on it. framed. gallery-style. i think this will be the first installment once we have a wall to curate. isn't it weird/great/almost scary when your dreams start to become a reality?

I love it. Funny, yesterday Emery drew her first person and I beamed with pride. It was the first time that I didn't need explaining about what the picture is of. Kids are the best. I can't wait for your art wall.

if i were a bird, i would hire nash to make his drawing a reality, and then get weirded out that my dreams were becomming reality. what a nest!

I agree, the birds nest (my vote) is hypnotic and gorgeous! I love your idea about an art wall!

Once again, the iPhone could be a facilitator of Nash's talent for art. As we all know, his second favorite app (after the Zippo lighter) is Doodle Buddy, and who knows what skills this fun and engaging application may have unleashed within the boy's repertoire?
love,
grandpa

Liz- As your high school art teacher, I have to say that Nash has the same finesse as his mom.
