Ava, By Ava


Got home from work last night and Madison had an informal art class waiting. We all sat down on the rug in her room and, following her direction, sketched out self portraits in pencil, which we then colored in, using the big pile of crayons our "instructor" had provided.

Ava stuck with her little project longer than anyone else, and we were all very impressed by the result, so I thought I would post it, with the artist's approval, of course.

"Are you going to send it all the way around the world?" she asked me, as I processed the scan of her little masterpiece. I told her I was, and her smile seemed to indicate she was pleased with the idea.

I like how Ava thinks, a girl is never fully drawn without a little mascara. Well-played! -from philly
