A Boy and His Art
Lawyer loves art. Period. No questions asked, art of any kind is his favorite thing to do. He will draw, color, create for hours...and I mean hours.
We usually have art sessions directly upon arriving home from school, the designated activity is established as soon as he shuts the door when I pick him up from school.
I usually try to have art supplies on hand at all times and it usually is quite a sigh of relief when an overly antsy 4 year old needs something to keep him quiet or occupied.
I happen to think he is an AMAZING artist for being 4...I know a lot of 8 or 9 year olds that can't draw a stick figure to save their life. And yet here is Lawyer, plugging away at his drawings, drawing knights complete with shields, swords and a helmet riding on his trusty stead to save the fair maiden locked away high in the castle from the mean "ghost pirates".
And I grin ear-to-ear each and every time a precious creation is placed in my hands with a little boy saying "I made this for you, mommy" and then saying "I love you" and giving me a sweet kiss.
Sigh. These are times to remember for certain and so are these pictures. I've taken pictures of each and every one of his pictures and I will have the printed in a bound for-real book as a coffee table book that will most certainly remain a coffee table book in my house for all times.
(A word on the little devils in a few of the pictures: He has an art book that shows these under the Halloween section so don't get too freaked out by it!)
