I Hate Devorce


An emotional portrayal of parental ‘Devorce’. A red heart is at eye level. An adult(?) (or child?) is directing a very large knife to the ‘heart’ of the tree.  Is this one parent depicted as cutting the into the heart of the child? 

There are numerous jagged edges on the tree branches and leaves. Pointed branches and sharp edged leaves may be an indication of aggressiveness.  Is this the child artist demonstrating their hurt and pain by cutting away the heart? Undeniably, the title is quite revealing.

Don’t Know Who to Choose


An happy face with blue tears streaming down is front and center on this artwork. A picture of a hand knocking on the door is added  competing the message of who to see. Is this child at the front door of mom or dad? This child is confused and is in an impossible position to win. When the child is forced to choose no one wins!  The ransom note style call for help completes this desperate and sad request.

I Still Love You



This artist shares her “parents are going threw a divorce right now” and “things are crazy”. and she is trying to deal with the emotional trauma of parental conflict. She declares continual love for her mother. This is the tragedy of divorce/separation for some adolescents and young adults. How sad this artist feels the need to express LOVE for her mother via artwork.

Dear Daddy,


An endearing letter from a loving child. Someone had a great summer with dad. How sweet they mention the unicorns and aliens seemingly, special memories for both child and dad. One thing is for sure: babies sure do love their daddy’s.

Kubo and the Monster


This very talented artist faces the ‘monster’ of divorce.  Excellent depiction of the emotional experiences of divorce from the child’s perspective. The artist shares: “As Kubo walked into the dark, gloomy cave, he suddenly heard a noise and swiftly turned around to it’s source, he looked but there was no one there, he turned back around and gazed at the sight of the monster ,The Monster of abandonment ,and despair, he swiftly grabbed his guitar and shamisen,and started to play.”

info about the art from the artist:
“Okay, the shadowy wolf thing its actually what I had to deal with in my elementary school years ,you see my elementary school years were not the best ,I had to face betrayal ,abandonment ,loneliness ,and my family now divorced ,and many other things ,but it wasn’t until jr. high that I met my friend ,which is now my friend even to today.”

Confusion!  Who do I pick?  Mom or dad?  Tears appear to be flowing in two distinct paths; mom and dad? She seems sad. Even her hair seem droopy. Are tears flowing down on each side under the desk? Letters that write mom look larger than under dad’s side. The eyes of this little girl are pronounced albeit confusing. There is something about her eyes.  What do you think?

Give this Note to Your Dad


Putting the child in the middle of communications between the parents is unfair. Apparently, this is the experience for this child. A rather simple picture with rays of sun in the upper corner. I hope these parents become aware of how their actions are impacting their child. Divorce is between the parents-about the child.  LOVE WINS!
