A Young Artist at Work

Lola has a new table and chair set her Aunt Kate gave her. Whenever she comes to visit we bring her table out into the middle of the room and we get her crayons and a nice fresh sheet of drawing paper out
Lola gets right to work. She draws mostly with her left hand...
but when that one gets tired she draws with her right hand... Her favorite things to draw are circles and "shahdies" which is her word for flowers...

The young artist sits back and reviews her work...
Time for a snack break. Lola shares her fish crackers with her adoring fans, Zinnie and Polly

and then sits down to read a good book... Now, if only her Grandma can be more disciplined and sit at her art table to work every day....

She certainly looks thoughtful with those crayons - a true artist, carefully considering her medium!

She keeps her crayons so nicely on the paper, my daughter still likes to draw on her table and chair.

I like the new look!

Cute, I want a grandchild too! (Just not for about 15 years.)

Thanks everybody! She does a great job keeping the crayon on paper, but there are a few little colorfull stray "circles" on the table top too...all a part of the creative process i guess!
Laura, you will LOVE grandchildren, all in their own good time! ;)

Awww! So sweet! I love how interested she seems to be in drawing--it's such a wonderful thing to give a child some crayons and watch them go!
