A Random Image

Okay, granted, Mathias’ future as a portrait artist may be precarious, but I had to turn my head so my eyes could tear up when he showed me this picture he drew of the two of us.*

The thin patch of butch-cut hair I am sporting doesn’t make much sense, but the googly crazyeyes certainly do and I am unsure of what he seems to be pointing at. None of these factors triggered the well-up mechanism.

The fact that he depicts us with smiles roughly two miles past our heads did.

*It was originally rendered in ‘Gweem’, his most favorite color, but I had to darken it up a bit in order to catch the detail.

    whoa… this looks SO much like something from artwork from my daughter’s early days that i thought you were digging through our boxes of memorabilia! i’d love to link to one of them i have on line to give you an example of some before and after, but i think i’ll maybe e-mail you something later instead if you’re interested! too cute… she is 15 now and does some really amazing stuff. love your blog – your writing is fabulous.

    Great drawing!

    Kind of sad, that your son is in college.

    But still, a great drawing.

    So I’m the only one who sees a giant smiling penis-headed googly-eyed menacing mother snake about to be vanquished by a Teminatoresque exoskeleton-enveloped son? Yeah, well, that’s why I don’t plan on having kids. Thank the lord for not “blessing” me, and say a little prayer for tel while you’re at it.

    That’s a classic. My mom framed our artwork when it was that good.

  9. I worked on a house in Greytown once. It was an old school converted into a mansion. In the kitchen, behind the glass splashback, we put all the kid’s artwork, stretching from one side of the room to tother.

    Pretty rad, 5 year olds’ drawings framing a $50,000 kitchen.

    genuinely, i first thought it was a portrait of christ on the tree. the fuzzy nature of the art seemed to represent the chaos of uncertainty that his followers must have experienced. i thought it brilliant. damned modern art!
