From The Artist's Desk
These are just a few of Jonah's latest drawings. Trust me, I've got a drawer full of more like these and another half dozen on my refrigerator. He's suddenly blossomed into a drawing machine and is pulling out pencils and drawing paper throughout the day. Not that I'm complaining.
Much of his artwork is based upon Thomas the train related characters and scenes. It's especially cute to watch him work on all of the intricate details. He will even put in one of his DVD's, get it to a particular scene, freeze frame it and then sit by the coffee table drawing out what he sees on the television. So creative!
While it can be annoying to constantly find pencils and paper scattered about my living room and tables, I am more than happy to let him get his creative juices flowing. Even if that does mean that most often his subjects are trains and crabby old Diesel 10 (his favorite). One day he'll draw a beautiful portrait of his mother.
By then I may be old and gray and full of wrinkles, but I'm sure he'll capture each and every one of them in a beautiful way.
