My artist.

IMGP2262

In our family artistic talent is either all or nothing. Robert can draw anything! He is especially accomplished with an Etch-a-Sketch, and he entertains us all with his crayon creations at restaurants that have butcher paper on the table. Will and I, on the other hand, have not one artistic bone between the two of us. Dots, luckily, has inherited Robert's talent.

Dots takes art lessons once a week at a really neat studio in our neighborhood. Yesterday she came home with two creations that I thought were particularly good: a self-portrait that was part of a study of Egyptian art and a sculpture whose inspiration and background are unknown because I forgot to ask.

When I told her how much I liked both of her pieces of art, Dots asked excitedly, "Oh! Will you put them on your blog?"

Absolutely, Dots. That's a sure ticket to fame.

Did you ever get my comment about the painting of the little boy in your pictures from your friend's birthday party? I was wondering if you knew who painted the picture of the little boy.? Thanks!
