And I'm Giving All My Love to This World

"Mommy?"

"Yes, Griffin?"

"I can't wait to go to the art fair!"

"Great!"


"Hey, Mom?"

"Yeah?"

"If I meet an artist I like, can I invite them over to look at my art?"


"Mommy?"

"Yes, Griffin?"

"This one really isn't art. I don't like it."

"Why?"

"Because it looks too much like real life. Art shouldn't look like real life."

Alrighty, then.


"Mommy, we need to hang your art in the playroom."

"No, I think we'll hang it in the living room."

"But! I want it in the playroom with my art."

"I know that, Griff. But we should have art throughout our home, not just in the playroom."

Griffin has a pretty sophisticated view of art already. Most art doesn't look like real life!

Very perceptive of him! It's nice to have your own art style too...he's gonna' love art history class!

And that is one nice tree canvass...to match the new "Chinese" curtains perhaps?

He wants his mommy's art in his playroom so he can see it as he plays. Sweet guy.

i love this - i love how kids have such particular views on art - and their own art - but somewhere around junior high that tend to disappear.

I love how kids develop their own ideas about these things regardless of what we tell them.
