Some families are generational doctors, lawyers etc., etc. With our family, the “art gene” has been passed down from my father, through me and now to my daughter and son. This is my son’s’ work and I am simply amazed at this boys’ talent and dedication and also look forward to seeing his continued talent get even better as he enters his junior year at LCAD. He keeps me on my toes and continually spurs me on to keep painting!
The large canvas on the two easels is approximately 4′ x 6′ and the painted aluminum piece on the floor is approximately 3′ x 4′. My hat goes off to artists who think outside the box, especially when it comes to working on different surfaces. A fellow artist, Amber with Burnt Umber Arts, has been working on metal and also has a great blog – so check her site out. Whether you consider yourself a Rembrandt, Picasso, Jackson Pollock or even a stick figure type of artist, painting with your children and grandchildren is not only fun but plants the seed of creativity.
