Griff is starting to show more interest in representational drawing, as opposed to the explorations of color or line he's tended toward in the past. Unfortunately for my collection of kid art, though, his biggest new accomplishments often seem to use impermanent media such as the magnadoodle or, in this case, bath crayons. Since I can't fit the tub into a portfolio, I take a picture to remember later. And, in this case, I also took a video clip of Griff's explication of his masterpiece. As a bonus, there's a discussion of gun safety in the middle of the clip, complete with pauses in which Jess the Mommy ponders how to answer questions in a manner that is both truthful and parentally wise. ;)
If you click on the second picture, you can see a bigger version. The tall structure on the right is a "bumpy castle" possessing two red windows and a red door. The cliff upon which it stands descends into a mountain range that stretches to the left. Two bridges span mountain passes, each supported by an "important log" in the middle to make them less wobbly. Below the castle is a horse with a green stomach, standing to the left of a river, which has an additional log-supported bridge. Surrounding the horse are other, smaller horses and guns. The small items might also be "mean green creatures" who are taunting the large horse, "horse, horse, horse, horse, go in your head." Later the mean green creatures tethered the horse - each holding one rope tied to the horse.
