Lara Art

Hi web.
I always feel like I have to say right up front in any post that this is "Mr. Forty-two roads" writing, so that any phrasing, typographical errors, or nonsensical ramblings are appropriately credited.

There's a lot going on, and more every day, as the little ones grow up. Jakey is just ridiculously and adorably verbal (samplings: hagubuh = hamburger, sequedilla = quesedilla, sammup = stand up, moa-ata-peas = more water please [he says it all running together as if it's one word, though he can say each of the words just fine on their own; it's really adorable], baxetbaah = basketball [he busted out "daddy. watch. baxetbaah" after we took them to their first basketball game, Princeton vs. Penn women's bball... Princeton dominated. Our loyalties lay divided, now, however]) and Lara is doing new and impressive things at a fierce rate.

Here is a sampling of some absolutely amazing art from her recent creative explosion:

"Lara eating spaghetti and meatballs."
Her perspective is great, and watching how she adds to her repertoire, and how her style resolves, is just joyous. She has this coloring book-ish collection of pictures, and today she colored all the various arms/legs/face of one of the figures the same color for the first time, and really basically her finished work looked ... like a grown-up kid's!
(words I checked and stressed over the spelling: spaghetti, repertoire, and placement of kid's apostrophe. And now apostrophe.)

Here's a fantastic piece she drew:

(totally on her own, unsupervised, during "nap time," with no influences. And she's never been to a Warhol exhibit...)

And finally, the piece de resistance (or the piece de renaissance, I should say, given it's style):

"Lara: mixed media self portrait, on black, circa last Sunday."
She composed this at this great thing they do at the Philadelphia art museum, where on Sundays they have a set up for kids to do art projects; so after seeing some portraits, Lara crafted her own Renaissance style portrait... I think she did great, and it's so interesting how different her portrait looks than her normal pictures of faces.

Anyway, craft-ness seems to run in the genes, as she's always whipping up some art or other; it's great, and keeps our house well-decorated. Thanks for reading!
