Purim is a holiday in which we read the Book of Esther (twice, once at night, once during the day), give charity to the poor, share food baskets with friends, wear costumes (at least many of the kids do and a few brave adults) and eat a feast in the afternoon. My daughter made this drawing yesterday to put on oatmeal containers that will be given to her friends (see last year’s decorated containers).
Can you name any of the characters in her drawing? Here is the Book of Esther.

Heehee, Mordechai looks like an old boss of mine LOL!
Decorated containers of oatmeal is a great gift idea, and your daughter’s drawing will set them off so nicely :).
Your daughter is quite a little artist. I love the beard. 🙂
When you mentioned the containers I thought I remembered your post from last year.
I love that your children care so much about others.
She got talent, she draws so well. Thanks for sharing!
Your daughter is a good artist. I do remember you mentioning the containers last year. Time flies.
There is nothing like a homemade gift. 😉
Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Wow….excellent artwork. Very talented daughter you have.
Here is MY R T If you come visit…scroll down below my Heads or Tails entry to find my Ruby Tuesday. :o)
The artist has captured an important moment. She obviously remembers the fun of the costumes as a participant. Your daughter has picked up her talent from her mom, and her imagination is wonderful!
Sweet! Esther and Mordecai…very good story, great drawing!
Great! Now I’m wondering if anyone can identify some of the background characters.
Esther and Mordecai…very distinct, indeed!
I enjoy her artwork…like mom, like daughter.
Wish I had more time to do art. I should stick my cardinal drawing downstairs and get started on it.
I love the book of Esther.
It’s exciting lie a crime novel with a fair and happy ending.
Your daughter’s drawing is just so artistic and colorful, and queen Esther as beautiful and nobel looking as she once must have been.
Wish you a happy Purim celebration.
Leora, thanks for the reminder, I need to return the Vegie Tales Ester video to the library. Being a prof really ruined me on returning library stuff.
Your daughter draws good looking pictures. This one is soooooo nice! Where did she learn?
How cute these boxes of oatmeal will be! I love the drawings of children so much.
That’s Queen Esther. And her husband Mordecai?
Your daughter has the hand of an artist.
Purim is such a great holiday where you read the Bible.
Wonderful drawing. I love the costumes.
Your daughter is a fabulous artist – she takes after you, yes?
Hopefully, she will continue to do art! I guess I am “living” through her art at the present. Wish I did more.
Wonderful drawing, suck an artist:)Happy Purim, in scandinavia we celebrate Esther in April.
perfectly pictured, a chip off the old block, nu?
My Ruby Tuesday is my son’s new venture.
your daughter is truly talented.
Re your cardinal drawing – YES! We look forward to seeing the finished work!
«Louis» thinks it’s great encouragement for your daughter’s ability as an artist that you share her work with the readers of your blog.
The book of Esther is Mme la Vache’s favorite in the Bible. «Louis» will make sure she sees this post.
Your daughter has inherited your talent Leora, this is such a lovely drawing. She has a great eye for detail!
she has a wonderful eye
I love the composition and the colors and the details
I love the whole thing
I like the way you are sharing your daughter’s art with us, Leora! Covering oatmeal boxes is a great idea.
she’s a future artist indeed!
