My grandson the artist

My grandson, Byron, lives in Malta with my son Russ, his beautiful wife Fiona and his older brother Zac. He was out with the family when he came upon a cut piece of wood. He picked it up and mentioned that the cut end had really cool patterning. When he got home he made these prints using the cut end of the wood.

  8. Your grandson is a very talented young man. I suspect he may get some of that talent from his grandma. :-)

    1. He does, indeed.
      I realised once in my university sculpture class that some of my classmates that stuggled with proportions simply couldn't see it. I was baffled until I realised that the abilty to 'see' things was the first and crucial key to creating. Even if the 'seeing' was simply in your mind. If you see it, you can create it. Byron can definitely see. He is very dexterous and curious too. As his father, I simply provide an endless supply of paper and materials and occasionally show him another way to see the next thing.
