Surrealism

We've known my daughter has artistic tendencies from the time she was very young.

I posted about her first art installation here, created when she was just over 3 1/2 years old.

Then, there was the Valentine's Day "ladybug" - when she was about a year older.

When she was almost six, we got an iPad, so although her medium changed, the subject matter of her art remained pretty much the same.

Now that she's almost seven and a  half, her art has become more joyful. For instance, she painted this:

and this:



and this:


and even won the PTA art show photography category with this:

The theme this year was "The Magic of a Moment."

Her father and I were relieved, thinking that she had come through her personal blue period relatively unscathed and that things were looking up. So you can imagine how surprised I was when I went into the bathroom this morning and discovered her latest installation:

The theme this year was "The Magic of David Carradine."

Brutalism

P.S. Thanks to DC Blogs for linking to my post today -- you know, my autoerotic asphyxiation post. This is why my Mom tells people I'm incarcerated -- it's less embarrassing for the family.

She is a wonderful artist! I LOVE the branch/cardinal picture. I think I saw it on facebook and didn't read the caption and just sort of assumed it was by a grown-up. Impressive!
As far as the toothbrush is concerned: all true artists are tortured souls.
