Born Artist

My Nanos is 8 1/2 years old and is already a better artist than me! Not too difficult an accomplishment I admit. He loves to draw, he could do it all day.



He drew this guy last week. I actually think he looks a little like John Stockton.
He got this easel for Christmas, he's using watercolors, but soon I'll attempt to let him graduate to oil paints.

He did this Mona Lisa in his first grade class last year. His teacher was awesome and really did a lot of art and "master's studies" of various artists. He was a great teacher for my Nanos.

He's fantastic!

No suprise of course, since he's a GENIUS...

Wow, that's great, my child's art work consists of a lot of scribbles, but what to you expect from a 3 year old.

Part of me wants to purchase one of these because I just have this feeling he's going to be a famous artist when he's older and I will make millions off of one of the first pictures from your son.

Your boy is going to be a millionaire one day!!! I absolutely LOVE that one of Mona Lisa. I would love to have that one hanging in my livingroom. I have some of Addison's art framed and hanging in my diningroom....Good work on all of his pictures.

Wow he is so talented! You have a budding artist on your hands thats for sure! Thanks for understanding my love affair with Michael. I started to feel a little silly about the whole thing, but you know what it was a blast!

Holy trash he is amazing! Are you serious?! He's always been brilliant though. Honestly. Of all the kids I've met I'm not surprised this came from him. Jeez Louise.

What an awesome gift he has been given. I think it is wonderful that he is being encouraged to build upon his talent and make the most of it.

He is amazing! Would you ask him if the top picture is the one with George Washington's head and Martin Luther King, Jr's ear?

Laura- I have no idea what you are talking about, but when I asked Nano he said "yes". George Washington and MLK, jr. ???
