A New Art Form is Born

Fun with cars! Dinky toys are definitely the favourites around here at the moment. There are other toys that get played with regularly, but not like his little cars and trucks. This kid has been all about trucks since he was big enough to identify them. As in, one of his first "real" words was "KKK", which he would say any time a truck went by.

I try not to worry about it too much. He does like to do other things - he's always happy to paint or draw or play with play dough - although he often manages to sneak trucks in there somehow, too.

Anyway, I have to say I was pleased to see this new form of play show up the other day - treating the cars as aesthetic objects. (Please excuse the dirty carpet!)

It does my little Art Major's heart proud to see him sorting out his cars by colour, and arranging them in different formations accordingly. He particularly likes to line them up along the edges of things. Cars as sculptural objects - why not? He may be on to something.

Here's he's point out the yellow mustard car (yellow mustang).
Pretty enough to frame, no?
