Artistic Musings, by Zack

Zack is becoming quite the artist. To demonstrate, I thought I'd share some of his recent masterpieces:Not only do you get to see Zack's very phallic self-portrait, but you also get a glimpse at the nasty color of my kitchen counters.

And here's a picture of me and my son holding hands. Notice how ginormous I am in comparison to him--something I am currently trying to remedy.

And here's my favorite. Zack and I riding a unicorn.

That first picture, I must admit after reading your caption made me laugh super hard.

Zack is a great artist. I can't wait to have that kind of artwork around.

What a self-portrait! I would frame that one for sure! Save it for posterity!

Man, that Unicorn looks like a BLAST! And I'm really sorry about your head. At least you aren't completely bald though, he gave you a few scraps to hang on to.

Everyone, I about died when Zack asked me to cut out that first picture. It hadn't appeared quite that phallic until that moment. But it may be influenced by his initial fascination with the Veggie Tales. We had countless pictures of Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber initially.

Mom, Gee...thanks. I think? :)

Spammon, The hair! I forgot to mention the hair. It looks like I'm experiencing male-pattern baldness in that picture with a killer comb-over.

Janicenw, I bet titling this post "Condom Man" would have increased my traffic....

Carrie, None of my children are lacking in the self-esteem department. And I'm sure Freud would provide a wonderful analysis of that picture that may or may not include Zack's numerous potty-training experiences. :)

I miss that kind of artwork!! The circles, with the arms and legs sticking straight out. Love the faces too. He is such a cutie. Save them!!
XOXO

Those drawings are great. I wondered about that first one but I sure was not going to say anything.;) My daughter also draws me all huge in her pictures and her in the middle of me. I guess that means she feels safe. At least I hope that is the case. Not that I am "huge" or "over bearing". Ah, the joys of interpretation. Did I spell that word right?

I am visiting for the first time from A Life of Triggers.

BEAUTIFUL art!!!
Yes, that is a phallic self-portrait!
As for your size in comparison to Zack, that's just because, for him, you are the WORLD, not because you yourself are ginormous.
And...what could be more wonderful than riding a unicorn with your baby?!
Thank you so much for sharing!

you haven't seen ugly counters until you have seen my green stars circa 1960's
