Slightly Disturbing Art

…but very creative and detailed.


In the news last week was the tragic killing by a killer whale. Apparently the whale snatched a trainer by her hair from the pool’s edge and swam with her underwater like a chew toy. Well, Colton, who is fascinated by all things nature, and is naturally curious, was very interested in this story as Sean and I were talking about it with our Home Teachers. He knows all about Shamu at Sea World from a family vacation about two years ago. Plus, he and Daddy had just watched a documentary about Orca’s on the Discovery channel a few days before. Shortly after our Home Teachers left, Colton disappeared for a while into the family study and emerged later with this picture he illustrated of the tragic occurrence. Morbid, I know, but my favorite thing is the JumboTron, my second favorite thing is her hair.

Pin It!

It's kinda funny that he drew that!

Wow he is very artistic, and so funny that he felt the need to illustrate such a tragedy, it must've really affected him!

Wow! Further evidence to the fact that our children are listening to, and processing, everything. Great artistry & details. Love your hair, BTW.

Ok the jumbotron is too much. He is so accurate in his artistry. I am so glad he refrained from using the color red anywhere on his drawing.

I'm sorry, I know it's morbid but I laughed til tears came. What a funny little boy - and quite artistic too.

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
