You may have read in my sidebar to the right that I am the mother to two young artists. I have all sorts of art floating about the house. I just wish I had enough money in my budget to get all that beauty framed!
The piece you see to the left is a somewhat poorly scanned replica of the sketch of the singer Adele that my son Nathan created about a month ago. He's 15 years old, and he has honed his gift by teaching himself art techniques via books and YouTube videos. He does some great work. (He also has a great eye for photography, and he has assisted me with three of the four weddings I have photographed. I wouldn't do a wedding without him.)
I waited patiently for him to scan it and post it on Facebook, as he does with most of his art. I waited...and waited...but the poor guy was just so busy with school and band activities that I just decided to put it up myself.
It was sold to a woman in Oregon within a few days of posting. (Hi, Marie! We hope you enjoy it.)
Again, this scanned image is really not a good representation of the original portrait, which has beautiful, subtle shading. Perhaps I should have taken a photo of it instead. Alas, the original is on the other side of the country now, but I did keep a copy of it for myself.
