Way back in the day...

Once upon a time in 1983... I was 4 years old. I actually remember painting this. Inspired by Jackson Pollock of course. I was talking with my Visiting Teachee (Mormon Speak) about how our personalities are innate. I have always always been drawn to art. It's just weird that I didn't realize that was a key part of my personality. (I'm a little slow at times). If I wrote in my journal I would often illustrate the events, but mostly it was just pictures.

This is an elephant and a very large tulip that I drew in 1rst grade.


Here's the weirdest drawing I found. (Age 8)Heehee. It cracks me up. My drawing of God has noodle arms... so that is a bit peculiar. But it's always reassuring to know that God is better than gold.

Anyway, a bit of shameless self-promotion, I just set up shop with some t-shirts and stuff of my work. You can click the link in the side-bar if you're interested.

The end.

I like God's sandles. Very cool. Where can I get a pair?

I always pair tulips and elephants. I think they go perfectly together.

Meridth has an artists soul :)

Sandals are very comfy and being that He's a busy guy I'm sure they're better than dress shoes.

Mer, do you not remember the many drama moments we had in school and your journal entries about said-events were just drawing and pictures?!! You have always been an artist!! A very good one at that.

Your drawings at 8 are far beyond anything I have ever done.
