Fiesta, Margarita!

Created early August 2008 by Avery

The mother of the Budding Artists settles down for the summer evening with a small, nightly cocktail. A new mommy favorite.

Pirates and the Airplane

Created August 10, 2008 by Ethan

Another Ethan creation, obviously influenced by a steampunk Dora episode or something, since steampunk is where you usually find sky pirates. I think.

Guests for Dinner

Created August 10, 2008 by Ethan

The night before, or friends Jim, Maria, and their daughter Lourdes, stopped by. Here, Ethan captures the moment the next day.

And yes, they DO look like a stalagmite, a stretched sock, and an upside down icicle.Thanks for asking.

The Fishtank

Created early August 2008 by Avery

Davy Jones Locker

Created early August 2008 by Avery

The terrible ghost of Davey Jones haunts the bottom of the seas, terrifying all manner of mammal and fish, as can be seen depicted here. Avert your eyes to the carnage, if you must!!

Cherries of a Different Color

November 2007

Another early Ethan painting with quite some restraint, considering he's only 2.5 at the point when this was painted.

Oh maybe it was secretly his teacher "helping."

Sushi Attack

Created November 2007

Ethan, the other budding artist, has taken up a liking to painting recently. Here is an early painting of his that just isn't a huge, 3 inch deep slop of paint all mushed together in a brown mess.

It's quite vibrant, filled with energy, and resembles fishbones. yum.

All American Family

Created Spring 2008

Obviously, the tall people are mommy and daddy. Strangely enough, for some unknown reason, Ethan has decided to hang upside down from the flag, with a sad cry for "HELP." While daddy helps him down, mommy cheers for a successful rescue, and Avery just stands confused over the whole situation.

Ladybug Takes a Holiday

Created Spring 2008

During a long, hot summer,Ladybug decides to vacation at the beach. Where she befriends Mr. Crab.

They share a margarita together as they watch the sun set.

Macaw of the Amazon

Created Spring 2008

The Love Bug

One More To Go

No one knows what terrible occurrence befell the three ducks previously. And obviously, the fourth duck in on his way to sharing their fate.
