Three paintings

There is a little gallery in the town nearby that does art lessons for kids. I love the way this particular art teacher guides them step by step, but encourages them to find their own style.

These three paintings are what Kid has brought home from the last few classes. bird in tree kid painting

Three Trees


Dragon Breath by Ursula Vernon


This book was a hit with Kid. He read it and then went out and got the next one from the library very enthusiastically. He likes how every page or two there is a drawn picture. Though he has tolerated the books without the pictures, he does much prefer the ones with some visuals. Kid says this book is very surreal and fun with lots of adventures.
