They crack me up. Heaven only knows what I was thinking when I made the "turnip"! It looks like more of a combination of a beet and who knows what. I did the best that I could, being only 9. I was especially interested to see how my art style has not changed much after all of the years have passed.
In case you cannot recognize what they are supposed to be... in order, they are; a cauliflower, a turnip, a carrot, an orange, the whole group of them all together and a watermelon slice.
I still use this method when making things like birds, people, flowers, etc. Only now I use acrylic paint to decorate them with and seal them with a clear coat to protect them. The ones above are not sealed with anything and they have held up for nearly a half of a century. Pretty amazing.
