artwork evolution

I love Lucy's artwork.

I honestly cannot get enough of it.

Especially since it has gone from just coloring the whole page black with her fist clenched tight around her marker to going hog-wild on what I like to call "ABC art:"

I love how she labeled her birthday party thank-you notes:
(Especially the "E"s)

And I love that she has started to ask how to spell certain words:

...and that she can do SMILEY FACES:

Lately she has started a series of "dot" drawings.I've always been endeared to my childrens' artwork (I think every mother is). In fact, I wrote up a little poem about it that I stuck in back here.

But as Lucy makes progress there is just something extra in my appreciation of it. It makes me so happy following her only-black stage...that one made me worry just a tad.

As far as Grace's "art" goes, she mostly makes it on the computer with these days:

...and she spent many thoughtful hours doing all this stuff for her friend for her birthday a couple weeks ago:

Here's a drawing Claire left on my pillow when I had to leave town last week: (how's that for heart-melter?)

...and I love this one she drew of our Fall Break trip a couple weeks back:
But I have to say the one that still think about is back here.

I adore to see the evolution or art and how it helps express how those little minds work.


  1. Hi, this has nothing to do with kids artwork which is absolutely the best. I loved the stage where they draw people with arms and legs coming out of the head. :)

    I cannot seem to find an email address on your blog to ask for info about buying a temple print or canvas, so I thought I would ask here. My email is crayz2sew at earthlink dot net. Thanks!

  2. The sweetest post! LOVE the evolution!

  3. My daughter has really shaky hands (It's called ataxic movement) so I was over joyed when she drew a picture of herself in her wheelchair back in July. I treasure it dearly. I haven't put it in a frame yet but it is going on my wall someday.
    It was such a huge thing for me to see how she sees herself and how hard she worked on that picture. She was so persisent. I posted the link if you want to see it.

  4. Hey! My name is Amanda Anderson. I am Stacey MacLeans sister who is friends with Kristin Duke. We also grew up with Aja Fegert. I heard about you through my sister and I wanted to know if you had an email address I can email you to. My son is 2 and has a retina degenerative disorder and although its very different from what Lucy has, I wanted to ask you a few questions. My email is Thanks so much. That little Lucy of yours is simply adorable.

  5. Every picture is a heart-melter! Children's art says so much about the child. I can see every child in their cute ways of artistically expressing themselves!
