My son, the artist

Yesterday evening found me downstairs sewing a couple more rows of my Ribbon quilt together, and Jason upstairs clipping some seams on his rag quilt. I can't wait until he's done and we can wash it and see how it ultimately turns out. I'm so proud of him.

Then, after dinner, we went to the art show at his school. Apparently, he is not just creative with fabric, but with paints as well - he won a 3rd prize ribbon for some beautiful spring wildflowers that he painted. Can't wait for those wildflowers to actually bloom in real life - I am ready!

Why wasn't it FIRST Place!! I think it is absolutely beautiful. Erin, you do such a good job of nurturing his artistic talent, too. You let him try all different things. And he's just cute as a bug, too! I would scare your kids to death if I ever met them....I'd be squeezing them silly....they would wonder why the crazy old lady is attacking them!!!! :) They are just so cute!

What a budding (no pun intended) little artist you have!

That painting is amazing! I couldn't do that. He definately is an artist. I bet he's anxious to see the rag quilt after it's washed too. I love rag quilts.

I always thought he had an acute artistic sensibility!
