Making Art

(As an aside, Arthur is one of the names we’ve tossed around as a possibility for Hypothetical Next Baby, and I’d like to assure you that should we ever have a baby named Arthur I will not be blogging about making him. Also, we would not call him Art; we’d call him Wart.)

So lately Sam has been showing a renewed interest in his art supplies. I think he’s finally made the connection between his actions and the resulting pictures, and he’s being much more deliberate in the way he holds the markers and applies them to paper.


He’s also showing a great deal of interest in colors, choosing each one carefully and bringing it to me to open. He won’t use it until the lid is properly attached at the end. He hasn’t even noticed how much markers look like swords, so I know he means business. Er, artsy business.

My father was going to get him a bicycle for his birthday, but I wonder if we should be thinking about an easel and colored pencils instead. Hmmm…

    Annika, you had better.

    Also, for a second I thought Sam’s head was on backwards.

    He’s a true artist!

    Emily loves to draw and stuff too – she’s sit and color for an hour at a time.

    Encourage him! He seems to love it :)

    He’s pretty talented!

    Also, Sam and Camilla have very similar hair. At least from the top-of-head view.

    I highly approve of Sam’s shirt.
