Yes, I am the crazy mom with the tendency to see genius in my kids’ scribblings. Yet I just have to say that 5-year-old Emi is really coming into her artistic own lately.
Her art differs greatly from her big brother’s. Asher has probably gone through 200 black and brown markers in his short life. His masterpieces are full of tiny ink-smudged details. In contrast, Emi’s art is big and splashy and full of bright colors.
Why would a flower have just one color of petals?
Emi has been interested in trick-riding for several months now, but I think this particular drawing best sums up her interest and her quirky personality:
I’m starting to think she has a thing for elephants:
(You did know that elephants smile, right?)
I like her recent depiction of the nativity…
… and the way she tends to sign her name in three different colors. What a girl!
She has a serious leaning towards fashion, and she often draws up a quick depiction of a certain hat or dress that suits her fancies:
Perhaps she has a future in Kentucky?
She is a serious lover. A committed peacemaker in the family. She wouldn’t harm a fly if she could help it. She is an interesting little creature… an enthusiastic addition to our homeschool this year… and it’s sure fun getting to know her.
(This is how our family looks through Emi’s eyes.)
