odysseus and the sea monster
This past weekend I had the privilege of going to the first kid show at White Whale, organized by Annie Koelle, my lovely and talented sister-in-law.
For a complete photographic account of the show involving children, monsters, and paint see her post here.
I came away with this painting by Henry Greene, age 8. Odysseus and the Sea Monster.
I imagine the sea monster is Charybdis because in the Odyssey there are two sea monsters, Charybdis and Scylla. Scylla has six heads so I think this is Charybdis.
I know I look a little tired. It is because for the 2 or 3 hours I was there I ran around with Henry and his brother Jude, all the while trying to keep my 3 year old nephew Marshall from punching other kids.
Henry and Jude are both very cool. They recently beat Super Mario Galaxy and told me all about it. I am proud of them.
here's a video of the show put together by Chris Koelle, my lovely and talented brother-in-law. Enjoy.
