A Still Life By A Busy Boy
Evan came home with this from school the other day and I fell in love with it. I love the graphic quality of his heavy black crayon lines. This seems very German Expressionistic to me - reminds me of one of my favorite painters, Max Beckmann. Maybe it's because of the freshness and exuberance and energy in the lines - the drawing is unencumbered by pretension (I don't know what artistic pretense a 7-year-old can have anyway).
Whatever. Enough "art speak". I love this drawing by my boy.
