This is an older watercolor that I forgot had been scanned in. Back when she still used more than one color without giving it a second thought.

She was really excited that she used two colors on this. Very proud of herself.

These are cartoon characters I've never heard of.

Lately Chloe's work has been decidedly monochromatic. She takes one crayon, draws something like this, and declares it finished. Then she picks up a different crayon and uses a different sheet of paper for the new color. She also tells us what is in the picture, something Connor never did. He was very literal- he knew his scribbling was just scribbling. Chloe sees a picture of me, or of our car, or of Clark. I guess all that TV isn't ruining her imagination after all!

Pokemon Masterpiece

He worked on this for a week, starting at a Cocktail Hour.

Best. Ever.

I know this is hard to read, but it says "What did you do this weekend?" "I watched tv." And yes, that pretty much sums it up!

Me and C

This is when I had Chloe in my belly. Apparently he's just now getting around to capturing that moment on canvas.

Summer Camp

They sent a folder home with all of Connor's summer camp work, so I'll put a lot of it up this week while we're waiting on Kindergarten-level work to find its way into the house. :)

Pretty in Pink

She is still working on making smaller marks with the pen. Then she always ends with a big flourish.

The Thing

The inspiration and the execution.

Chloe's Triangle

Chloe brought this home from school and I said, enthusiastically, "Chloe! What is this!?" She proudly replied, "My triangle!" "That's wonderful!" I gushed. "High five!" Chloe slapped my hand and ran off, grinning, as Connor called from the other room, "Mom, are you just saying that? That's not really good. Are you just saying it is to keep Chloe from crying?" I explained to him that it is good- it's good that she knows it's a triangle, and good that most of the coloring is concentrated somewhat inside the triangle. This is good work for a two-year old! But Connor wasn't having it. He clearly feels that my praise of his art has been cheapened now that he knows I'll hand out high-fives over a mess like Chloe's triangle. My boy has high standards.

Rocket-Powered Monster Truck

Before our recent trip, I hit the dollar aisle at Target to find something that might occupy the kids in the car. I bought Connor a Kung Fu Panda notepad and one of those pens with a dozen different ink choices. (When I was a kid, there were only four colors on those!) He doodled the entire trip. What a great $2 investment!

Me & C

This scan is horrible, despite multiple attempts. But this is me and Connor standing near the rainbow he and Grammy saw the other day. For some reason, Connor is blue and pink in this picture and the scanner didn't pick it up well.

Wikki Stix

Beth got Connor these awesome Wikki Stix for his birthday. We've had a lot of fun designing with them. Many of the creations are too three-dimensional to scan, but this sculpture of Chip was life-like in its thinness so it scanned pretty well.

A Car!

This might be the first one that didn't need an explanation!

But I do need to tell you- the lines on the side of the car? Those are flames, like the kind you might have painted on your car at Ramone's Custom House of Body Art Shop.

What Do I Know?

This is from the same painting session. I feel this is obviously the faucet on our kitchen sink, but Connor says it's a hook.

I drew a heart and he copied it. He also copied my flowers, although you can only see his in this post.
