I like the art that is made by my own kids, corny I know!

I used to enjoy drawing but my parents never displayed or saved any of them. I once won an award at school for painting a ship sailing by a rocky coast line, so very proud of it, but my mom gave it to her boss as a Christmas gift. That was the last thing I ever did.

I always give my boys paper and either crayons or paint and let them draw whatever. They are still in the scribble stage but to me they are master pieces. I have a 4 drawer filing cabinet for each of my kids so they can save everything from art to school projects to whatever they are proud of.

... The only other art we have are paintings done by my grandma-in-law. An Eagle, Sail Boat, 3 flower ones, a classic car, and a Dove. She did nearly 100 of them and all her kids and grandkids have them.

That is so sad about your painting purple poet! I am going to keep my boys' best works too so I had better hurry and find a safe way of storing them so they don't all get ruined by the twinado. I have some artwork from my childhood including two paintings at age 8 and 10 that are now on my wall at home and it is so special. One is a fat colourful cat and the other an owl perched on a branch with stars in the background.

I love Mark Ryden's work but it is a bit dark. I love happy, childish stuff. I have been drawing little big headed, big eyed girls for as long as I can remember and still do occasionally. Now they mean something much more though. Each one I draw with care like a potential daughter and then stare at her after in pain. I'd love to learn to paint one day. I'd love to do amazing fantasy art works for the childrens rooms one day and I don't need a girl as an excuse to paint fairies and mermaids!
