Three Little Girls Drawing

Our girls love drawing. We supply them with all sorts of paper and markers and pencils and crayons, and they go to town. Seriously, they can burn through hours of daylight with their artistic endeavors.

Julia's skills have increased by leaps and bounds over the past month. Here is a sketch she did on one of our coveted Magna-Doodles. She's getting good, isn't she? I'm not sure who this girl is supposed to be, but she's got a pleasant smile. That bodes well, if I'm to read anything into it regarding Julia's psyche.

Kate's drawings nearly always abound with princesses and castles, or depictions of the family. Lately she has made some forays into new territories. Here we have a snap shot from her recent excursion into Monsterland. I'm thinking it's a goblin of some sort. She did well with the pointy ears, sharp fangs, and asymmetrical eyes. I, for one, would not like to meet this creature in a dark alley.

Genna tends to spurn the Magna-Doodle in favor of the more traditional medium of pencil on paper. This one is a bit faint, but you should be able to pick out what it is. It's just what Dr. Morea dreamed of--a human-animal hybrid. I don't think Genna has ever seen a centaur or any creature like it, so I'm not sure what triggered this drawing. But it's a female centaur, complete with flowing locks of blue hair and blue eyelashes. Maybe there's something to the Jungian Collective Unconscious, or Plato's forms...
