You've Come A Long Way, Baby

Fiver drew this. By himself. Remember the boy who couldn't hold a crayon a year ago? Yeah, this ain't him. I'm so happy that I'm ready to submit it to MoMA.

In the words of the artist:

This is a picture of a big tree and me. I am the blue one, and I am about to go into the cave. My friend, F, is playing jump rope by the river, and my friend, M, is over on the other side of my cave. The yellow and red part is a mistake.

Well done, love.


  1. I can see it all.

  2. Perfect!

    And I love how he said that the yellow and red part is a mistake!

    Way to go Fiver!

  3. How very sweet! There is just nothing like a child's artwork to make you smile, I am glad he is improving!

  4. I can't imagine why it hasn't been snapped up by the Louvre or some other equally respected institution. If he couldn't hold a crayon last year and this year he is able to produce that are obviously doing something right. A lot of things right, from the looks of it. Good for Fiver!

Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
