Art… by Josh



It seems quite a while now since Josh made a drawing that’s not Star Wars-related, not battle-related.  It’s almost like he’s lost interest in drawing anything else.  So it was a very pleasant surprise that he came and showed me this:

Josh-Art1

Zoë had whispered to me while he was drawing that Josh was making a drawing for her.  He wouldn’t show me what he was working on while he was doing it.  All he asked was if elephants and giraffes live in the plains of Africa.

Hmmm, not sure how, apart from the “elephant” in this drawing, how the question factored in at all.  Josh explained to me that he always has a mountain and a boatman in his drawings, because of KungKung’s watercolor painting that hangs in our living room.  Josh really loves it and refers to that as “The Famous Painting.” {It’s a painting of Yangshuo, Guilin – with a lone boatman and the beautiful shrouded-in-mist mountains in the background.}

Ooooh yes - my boys kind of got stuck in the Satr Wars art too, but now and then they draw something else too. :-)

This is great - I love colorful children drawings! :-)

I see the family eye for composition shining bright there.

That's so cool! Is that a unicorn rising up out of the water? How sweet of him to make a picture for Zoe.

He has a nice eye for color and composition - I can see the "rule of thirds" in there! This is a super drawing. :)

How cute! I can't wait til my little man can draw like this and shows me. Otherwise, this is super cute and definitely would be framed up in my opinion or put in a little book for keepsakes. Love your site, btw
