graffiti or art? or both?

The other day, E came up to me and said, "Look at my shirt!" Well, it had marker ALL OVER IT! He was grinning ear to ear so proud of himself. It was a pretty junky shirt anyway, so I didn't worry too much about it.

But then, I noticed this on the door to the craft room..

Then, the next day I discovered all of this spanning from one end of the craft room to the other...

And on the desk:

And around the corner into the living room...

Wow! I was stunned! This is the most elaborate "wall art" that our little artist has ever attempted. I called him over "to have a talk" that went like this:

Mama: "Did you do this writing all over the wall?"
Chubbas: "Yes, I did!"
Mama: "Well, I don't think we are supposed to draw all over the wall are we?"
Chubbas: "No, we aren't."
Then a pause..
Chubbas: Very seriously - "But, mama, do you like it?"

That's my artist boy.. Can't stay mad too long when this clearly was not just some random scribbles, but a true work of art!

Ack, I would have fainted if I saw something like that on my wall. Although, it is amazing how creative children can be and how sincere E was about his artwork. I don't think I could have been angry anymore after a response like that.

That story is so funny... I nearly made a fountain out of my morning beverage.
