I’ve mentioned and shown my nephew’s affinity for art on this blog several times before, from turning my parents’ living room into a comic book to hosting his own art show on our family vacation last summer. Today I’ll brag on him again – one of his pieces from art class was selected to be in the district art show last weekend.
The piece is called “Leaf Prints.” I’m totally biased, of course, but I think it’s great. I was big into art at his age (he’s in first grade) and still dabble with my paints every once in a while, not to mention the whole mandala thing. Art is fabulous. I hope my nephew continues to do it as long as he loves it. I hope outside forces don’t influence him to give it up when he doesn’t really want to. And I really, really hope I get to see what he can do as he gets older.
