So my sister reminded us all recently that "The first rule of children's artwork is 'DON'T GUESS WHAT IT IS, ask them to tell you about it,'" but sometimes the guessing backfires BOTH 9-year-old niece and I were making shapes with my BuckyBall magnets, and I made a shape and she was guessing:

"Is it a car?"


"Is it a mouse doing the splits?"


I mean, those 2 items are PRACTICALLY the same thing, so I can understand her confusion.

So I'm not a good artist, but my artwork is...versatile? Leaves plenty of scope for the imagination? is open for interpretation?

It was supposed to be a frog.

I think a frog is the ONLY thing possible that could either look like a car or a mouse doing the splits...
