Family Heirlooms

scan0068Here are two clay sculptures that my sons made when they were young. The aqua gargoyle on the right is Spencer’s. I love the tiny white wings–so funny because if that guy were real, they’d be of no use to him. He would need giant dragon wings to lift his weight. But that’s the beauty of artistic license.

The spiky turtle-like monster is Sam’s and it was quite difficult to draw and paint, I must say. You’ve got to admire the painstaking detail that went into all those spikes. It’s solid and grounded–and not to be messed with, right? Funny how kids like monsters. And things that fight. I positioned them so that they are having a dialog. But I’ve always been a dreamer.
