The extinction of the dinosaurs..

Well, it appears that my drawing dinosaurs phase is all but a passing memory. I've been drawing lots of new things the last couple of days, here's a few of them!

This picture is of a girl in a boat and her friend the alligator is in the water. He's a nice alligator though, so he won't eat her! I'm not sure where her hair and other eyebrow went though!

This is a Zoo, at night (see the bats!). It got a little crumpled because I didn't like one of the bat's wings, but Mommy liked it anyway.

Here's a picture of me and my very best friend in the whole world, cousin Alex!

Something new....

Mommy let me try something new today. She got some new kinds of paint out and a big thing called a "canvas". I painted a picture of a Zoo with a volcano shooting green fire everywhere. I had lots of fun and I really liked painting!

I painted this Jack-O-Lantern too!

Autumn in the Park

Mommy, Alex, Dzjadgi and I went to the park. The leaves were all different colors and it was really pretty. Here's some pictures Mommy took!

The Creative Process....

Step 1
Wake up very early in the morning and do some whining about how you NEED your scissors, because you HAVE to cut some paper. Next, while mommy is making breakfast (preferably BEFORE she has her coffee) quietly get a chair so you can get your scissors down from where your mommy hid them. Next, cut some paper.

Step 2
Arrange the paper into the desired form.

Step 3
Give mommy a sob story about how HER fancy glue is better than your gluestick. Once the fancy glue is obtained, glue your picture to a piece of posterboard.

VOILA! A dinosaur collage!

Cut and Paste....

My favorite time to do art is when mommy is making dinner. Tonight I got out my scissors (I was careful) and I cut some paper pieces into different shapes, and then put them together to make a whale.

Then mommy gave me a big piece of poster board and a glue stick so I could glue them all together! It took me a long time (cutting all those teeth was tough!), but I did it all by myself! Now mommy just has to find a place big enough to hang it.

Big Blocks

One of my favorite toys to play with is my big blocks and as you can tell from my stoic expresssion in these pictures, I take it very seriously. I'm getting pretty good at balancing them so I can make really tall towers, this one is taller than me! I'm two in the first picture and three in the second, can you see how much I've grown!

Vegetarian T-Rex

Did you know that T-Rex's like to eat other dinosaurs? I did, but mommy said it's not okay to bite cousin Alex for REAL when we play dinosaurs, so I try really hard to remember to just pretend. This T-Rex doesn't eat other dinosaurs though, he's nice and he eats apples!

The neverending dinosaurs....

Can you tell I'm in my "dinosaur phase". Well, I am a three year old boy, what did you expect! Looks like that bird family made it to the other side of the paper!

A letter to Gracie

I got some mail yesterday from my cousin Gracie. She sent me a beautiful picture on green paper that I hung on my fridge. I made her a picture and wrote her a letter today. The picture is of a nice monster in his garden. I made some clouds, but they are the big puffy kind, not the kind that rain falls out of. I also made a mommy bird and her two babies, can you see them? Mommy helped me with the letter, I told her what I wanted it to say and she told me what letters to make. Mommy said that we can go to the post office tomorrow to mail my letter!

*****UPDATE*****

I got a new letter from Gracie today. Here's the picture she sent. It's a nice monster in his garden (the little guy on the right is his shadow), some clouds, a bird family.....this feels like deja'vu. Gracie worked soooooo hard on my picture and I LOVE it...almost as much as I love Gracie......but not quite because I could never love anything as much as I love her!

The finished product....and the aftermath

This is the monster I drew tonight.

This is the floor after I drew the monster.

I drew lots and lots of monsters, but I only wanted mommy to hang THIS monster up. Mommy said she liked ALL my monsters, but I didn't. Some of them didn't have the right kind of mouth that I wanted, some of them didn't have enough room for all thier feet and some of them I just didn't like. Being three sure can be tough!

Perhaps Picasso or Dali got started in chalk?

I call this piece....."Melty Playground"!

Composing...a quick look back at the diaper years....

Hmmmm.....no no no, that key just doesn't sound right..

Let's see here, it looks like Beethoven had this same conundrum in his symphony no. 5 in the middle of the third movement...

Maybe if I try a C sharp right here instead....

Ahhhh...YES! Much improved!

Boy, that Beethoven sure does know his stuff! Now, who's going to change my diaper?

ROAR!

For the last week or so I've been drawing lots and lots and lots of dinosaurs. Here's a couple T Rex's and a Stegosaurus (Mommy thought I should put a tail on the T Rex and four legs on the Stegosaurus, but I told her I can draw them however I want!). Mommy thought it's neat that instead of just making a circle for the T Rex's head I drew the eyes and mouth into the shape, she said I'd never done that before...well, I guess there's a first time for everything!

Diggin' Trucks

Here's some digging trucks I made, do you like the one that has a T Rex for a digger?

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com

Can you guess what this is?

Surprise! It's a man wearing an apple tree costume (the tree has a bird in it). See his legs? All the apples are falling off because he's shaking around!

Stickers and Felt

Well, now that you know I like to draw, did you know I like stickers and felt too! I made a beautiful cup called "Christmas Cup". Mommy's going to save it so I can drink milk from it at Christmas time while I eat gingerbread cookies with my Daddy! My Dzjadgi (that's polish..well sort of....for Grandpa) made me a cool felt board too. I made a felt Grandma!

Inspiration at Marineland

We went to Marineland and had a really great time. I got to ride on a rollercoaster and see Orca and Beluga whales! Here's a picture I drew of a mommy Orca whale. If you look really closely you can see a baby whale in her tummy too! I also drew a Beluga whale, see her bumpy head! I put a moon in the sky and some star stickers to make it nightime.

My favorite girls

I love my Nani Sally and my cousin Gracie so I wrote them letters to tell them! I'm not sure who the other girl is, I think maybe it's my Aunt Lor, do you like her polka dot dress and mullet?

One of Mommy's favorites

Here's a picture I did just a couple of months ago. It's a boat in the water, with a dolphin jumping up on a sunny/rainy day.

Rocketman...

A couple months after I turned 3 I decided one day to draw spaceships. I never saw an actual real live spaceship before, but mommy read me a book called "Professor Noah's Spaceship" that I really liked that had a really cool spaceship in it. I also really liked that it had lots of animals in it (did I mention I like animals?). Anyway, I drew lots and lots of spaceships, all day long, I didn't even want to stop to eat or go swimming! All the spaceships started out the same, but ended up different. I didn't want to draw anything else, just spaceships. Soon mommy had a BIG pile of them. She saved some and here they are!
