Artistic Endeavors

It has been a recent development that Vinny has been able to tell us what he's drawing. He's been scribbling on a page for some time; his grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins have gotten cards "signed" by him since before he could sit up on his own. But it was just last week that he told me that he'd drawn an airplane.

This detail from one of his masterpieces shows his other favorite still-life subjects: thunder, lightning, and the moon. Personally, I find the pictoral representation of thunder amazingly expressive. Sometimes, it does sound just like that.
