So I mentioned to my five year old, Maddie, that there was a forum where people posted the pretty pictures they made. Maddie loves to draw, and she loves to show off her work, and she asked me to post some of her drawings here. Yes, I know you're not supposed to post the works of other people, but she is adorable and has me wrapped around her finger.
Here we have a picture of Maddie in what she considers a very pretty dress. She likes flowers.
The next three works are part of a series that she did all in a row. While she makes really cute drawings of kitties and puppies and princesses, I really like her more abstract work, where she just kinda dicks around with shape and color. She first started with a rainbow, though she subverted the normal color arrangement and instead had the gradation occur along the length of the rainbow, rather than from outside to inside. (Note: when she explained this to me, she did not actually use the word "subverted.")
Next she colored some thick, vertical lines, and drew some hearts over them:
Last is my favorite. Just a series of color squiggles dropping down demarcated regions, with her name in rainbow colors on the right side. Maddie would point out that the colors of her name and of the left-most column are in order, while the ones in the middle are not. She thought it would be pretty if they were different.
Thank you for playing along. You have a made a little five year old girl very happy.
