What Do You See?

the funhouse
My daughter and I worked together on this drawing last night. She nicknamed it “the fun house”. So, what do you see? (click to enlarge)

Ilana-Davita says

A head with lots of fun things around it.

Napaboaniya APAD says

I'm seeing a pair of happy mother and daughter working on a masterpiece :P

I'm seeing butterflies and candies...

G_mirage says

I asked my 5 year old what he sees, and he said, a scissor, a man's face, a man with closed eyes... :D

Robin says

I'm dating myself, but the first thing I thought of is that the "clown's" eyes look like two rotary telephones!

I like the girl in the prairie-style dress in the bottom right, too.

Fun project, and even nicer that you did it together.

Risa says

Before I even read the post, as the page came up, I thought of Purim. I guess that fits in with the drash that Yom Kippur is a yom k'Purim.

Risa says

G'mar chatima tova to you and your family!

Vicki says

That's me in the morning, before coffee.

Looks like you two had a wonderful, creative time.

Lorri says

I see joy, love, and wonderful moments of mother and daughter bonding together.

I see a celebration of life!

Gail says

I see a pretty and very happy picture. I hope you save it. It brings back memories of my mother and I. When I was about 7 or 8, she bought a book for me that had poems which had spaces for illustrations and we worked on the pictures together. It was lost somewhere along the way and I'd give anything to see it again.

Leora says

Gail, thanks for saying that. For some reason I was in a lousy mood yesterday, and I just got the urge to doodle. My daughter wanted to doodle, too. Maybe some day my daughter and I can do poems together, too, when she finds written language easier.

Lorri, that's sweet.
Vicki, it was nice.
Risa, well, I like to have a little Purim fun throughout the year.
Robin, thanks for noticing the girl in the prairie dress!
G-mirage, thank for your son for me.
N-APAD, yeah, looking again, I see the butterflies, too!
ID, it was a fun creation. My daughter enjoyed the process with me.

Jack says

I like all the bright colors.

Fishing Guy says

Leora: I see a big clown face as the central theme with several children faces to the left. I do see the girk with the fancy dress at the bottom with the little fish above her left arm.

I feel a lot of music and doors to go through just like I remember in a fun house. It is so colorful.

Michelle says

I see smiling faces and happy things that show a happy child and a wonderful Mother who made her childhood a safe place to be a child..

The Babysitter says

wow, really cool, that looks amazing!

I see a face in there in the middle.
I thought the eyes look like those dial telephones too

from a distance, without thinking about the details, it looks like it's perfect that it's meant to be that exact way, it's pretty and colorful!

Jill says

What a wonderful collaboration!
My mother gave me the love of art I have to this day. She would show me semi-abstract paintings she did and when I asked what it was she'd reply, "What do you see?" This became a great game and really made my imagination grow.
You are giving your daughter a great gift...
By the way, I see a face and several small faces. Fun!

hihorosie says

face with rotary phone dial eyes
two-scoop ice cream cone (blue raspberry and cherry?)

What a fun project! So creative and colorful.
