We had the idea that Declan could be the Milky Way, Andromeda or the Sombrero Galaxy for Halloween. I bought glittery fabric paint, a black shirt and a bunch of space stencils to start the process, but he quickly decided that he wanted to take over and commandeered the paintbrush. I think it actually turned out better than anything I could have made. It certainly looks more like actual space than stencils would. He even has his own sense of exactly when to stop.
I suggested that it looked somewhat nebula-like, but he said no, it’s a whole bunch of galaxies and black holes.
Small thinking, mommy. Why be a galaxy when you can be the whole universe for Halloween?

I think he is a talented artist-
Nothing like the scope of a child’s mind to broaden our horizons. He’s awfully talented!
I love, love, love this.
So whimsical, and even more meaningful that he created it himself, he did an amazing job, I’d say creativity runs in his blood!
Very original idea. I love everything about it!
It’s beautiful and, truth be told, not too far from airbrush paintings that I’ve seen done by actual astronomers!
