Some of you know that I recently moved from Chicago, Illinois to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas. While we investigated the local housing market, we decided to rent a small apartment. Happily we've found a home, and we close on the 23rd of May, but we are still dodging packing boxes and enduring the heavy footfalls of our upstairs neighbors. In the meantime, my wife is doing everything she can to occupy our four year old son. He has taken to art, so Rachel has assigning him a variety of projects to keep him busy. He's done portraits, collage, finger painting, water color, and most recently he's been introduced to still life. Little Otto was instructed to pick a few interesting items from around the apartment and depict them. He drew a bowl of fruit, a beer bottle, a toy train, and evidently he found his way into one of my boxes and pulled out something that caught his eye. Here is what he drew: I'm not entirely sure he even knows what his subject matter was, but it was certainly entertaining to come home from work and see him hunched over his small desk, staring at a Stielhandgranate and doing his level best to capture it on paper.
