Daniel's drawing of Mommy
Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 30 December 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.
OK. This one is super funny. Daniel said, "Mommy, Mommy! I want to draw you. Cos you are so pretty!" He immediately drew the figure on the left--first the head with a smiley face, then some hair. And then, two lines going down!
"Are those my hands?" I exclaimed.
"No. They're your legs." Dan said.
"Where are my hands then?"
"They're behind your back. You can only see the legs!" he answered with absolutely no hesitation.
"Can I draw you again, Mommy? Because I want to remember how you look like."
"Hrrmph.... ok whatever," I said.
Dan then proceeded to draw the second drawing on the right. I think he must have sensed my dissatisfaction with my "legs" and so to compensate, he gave me suuuper long legs this time. But still no hands... or body...
