Drawing with the gods

If there's something my little witch loves, like most kids, is to draw. He's constantly creating (he's addicted to the pens and pencils my gorgeous friend Eva sent him, lol) from his favorites detailed monsters (with ability & power level charts) and skulls to castles, drgons, cars, and deities, many deities.

Right now he's working on a temple with Goddesses statues. I mentioned to him it's all black & white, but he explained that they're marble statues, so of course, there's no color... Okay... So far there are Artemis, Gaia, Nike and Aphrodite. I just love to see how comfortable he is with his spiritual path, and how natural it is for him to talk about it and to be connected to the gods in such a simple yet powerful way.

My current favorite is this "Goddess Tree" with a bed on its branches covered by a quilt with a Goddess embroidery, under a starry night and full moon - lunar craters and all. He says it can be used by the Goddess herself to sleep, go figure. I love it:



Some time ago he made two favorites of mine: Hestia and Cernunnos. These are colorful and cute, and obviously already on my altar's wall:




I end up with a folder full of his "creations", it's sweet to follow how he goes developing his "style" and how his vision deepens and gets more mature on gods and the thin veil between the worlds. Not to mention the fun of listening to his descriptions, just cute. I highly recommend to those with kids to encourage these moments, being around just to follow the artists's thoughts, lol! :)

there is nothing like a child's drawings. Seeing the world from their perspective. I have loads saved from my grown children as well as from my grandkids... They are very special to me...

I don't think there is anything quite so magickal as watching a child create. It is so pure, direct, and totally without guile. And to be an observer of the creation is awe inspiring. Along with the drawings, lock that memory up in your heart.....they grow up so quickly. What a love Lucas is. Blessings, THe Olde Bagg, Linda

He does a wonderful job! I have a folder of art my neices have drawn for me over the years - it's one of my favourite things to look through!

He seems like quite the drawer! I am impressed with his talents. Make sure to keep that folder of drawings. I was cleaning my room out the other day at my dad's house and found all my old art books. It was such a treasure to share with my partner and show my dad again!
Blessings!

i kept a large brown portfolio of my daughters' drawings. seeing the technique develop is as fascinating as hearing the logic behind the composition.

You have set a beautiful foundation for Lucas on his spiritual path. I admire your dedication and love for your precious child.

Lucas is an amazing artist. That's such a great way to learn about things too I am finding. They process information differently and it's a joy to see what they make that are then a lovely addition to an altar!
