My son..the artist...

As I have mentioned before...my eight year old loves to draw....and for eight...he is pretty darn good.

He free handed this the other night in the car....in ten minutes....and "painted it" when he got home....am I biased or is this really good for an eight year old....

You be the judge...click on the picture, enlarge it....



Do you know what it is...it is a fall harvest picture...complete with cornucopia, pumpkins, gords (sp?), etc....in the forefront is an Indian head band....The dark area, behind the head band..that is the shadow, emanating off the cornucopia...his words, not mine...Is he a cool little boy or what?

Awesome--just curious why he is thinking about Thanksgiving in February? Maybe he was thinking about all the things he is thankful for??

What an awesome picture!

Rachel said...

That's awesome!
He is so very talented Dixie!!

Kojak said...

Wow! He has talent. I'm sure that he could get a free ride to college if he stays with it. Great Job.

That is a great drawing. My kids like to draw too.

Toni..he blushed when I showed him your comment. Thanks.

Slacker..thanks. I think so.

Flat...I don't know why he had fall and Thanksgiving on his mind. Maybe...he was thinking about being thankful, I don't know. I don't always have a clue as to how his mind works sometimes. This is the only drawing like this he has done. Usually, its StarWars or Army Men or something like that. That is why I posted it, because I was so impressed that he just randomly drew this.

Fantastagirl..thanks hon!

Rachel..thanks. I know and I want him to persue it. I am looking into any art classes, stuff like that he can take this summer.

Kojak..yeah. That's what I keep telling him. For an ADHD kid, to actually be able to sit still, do this, to me is amazing. He is not into sports..just computers and drawing, so who knows..a web designer, artist..I don't know. But yes, he does have talent. Thank you so much.

Daddio..thanks. I keep encouraging him to draw more stuff like this..but, that is the only one. Now it's back to Superheroes, army guys and Starwars.

Lets get really serious here. This kid is gifted your son, who at age 9 would capture the relevance of an Indian headband. Famous child I can see it now..
