Fun Monday # 78 Show and Tell



The hostess with the mostest this week is Aoj and at first glance she gave us an easy assignment...

"Show me your favourite photograph and tell me why it's your favourite.

It can be one you've taken yourself or one someone else has taken, a snapshot or a more professional image. Is there a story behind it? Do you love it for the memories it gives or just because it's pleasing to the eye?

Show me and tell me!"......

howeverI have so many favourite photos that I couldn't choose so I've decided to show you some recent art work by some of my favourite people....
my oldest grandson drew the first two
Mollie painted the one below for her Auntie Sam's birthday.

....and here is a picture of the artists with their brother

I think we are going to enjoy a lot of lovely photos today thanks to Aoj so hop over to her place and see who's exhibiting.

Awesome artwork! Your grandson is very talented. Does he take lessons?

And the color and simplicity of the birthday party one is quite pleasing as well!

I think they would sell on Ebay!!!
Not that you would sell them, but it is something they might do for some extra money!

I love the hair styles!! Only wish I were hip enough to figure out the inspiration. And, why are so many young boys such good artists, especially of comic heroes?

Charming, as always.
