Sunday Pic: The Mythology of Birds

Birdie has always been a visual person. As a wee baby she would study picture books, and as soon as she got words she began expressing her observations.

"Mama, that sign is like a triangle!" or "Look that truck just drove and made a circle." or one of my favorites... a "Tree Angel."




She is fascinated with magic and magical creatures. She and LaLa already have an entire mythology of power and talisman. "When I touch this rock it will give me the power to fight the evil minions!" This picture has been taped to the girls' door for the past few months. It is a Scorpadillo and it protects against monsters and bad dreams.No clue where she came up with a Scorpadillo.



The whole "Santa and the Reindeer" shtick goes over pretty big around Chaos for obvious reasons. Birdie mostly likes to draw the reindeer. You know. Hooves.





Mermaids. I think it's pretty obvious that these bathing beauties are Disney inspired.





And fairies, with cats that have fancy flower hat things growing out of their heads. It looks like this is gonna be a great week!

The cat with the fancy flower hat thing looks Dr. Seuss inspired!

Those pictures are pretty impressive. Do you have an enormous collection of her art somewhere? (I imagine there'd be a lot of it!) It will be neat for her to look back on it.

Can I borrow a scorpadillo? Maybe it will keep the evil spirit at work away from me.

Very nice pictures, and thanks for sharing them with us!

The sun in pic #1 looks curiously like the table in Calvin's
goldilocks story, the porridge picture. Except the table has 3 spoons and 3 bowls. My brother thought it said poopop. I digress.

I love the pictures. Use of color, fantastic. Flower-growing cats, imaginative. All around beautiful.

Is the scorpion like a cross between a scorpion and an armadillo? Bred for its skills in magic, like a liger?
