My Son's Awesome Abe Lincoln Painting

Today I am featuring one of my favorite artists in the whole entire world, my 13-year old son, Eli. He has been telling me that the art teacher at his school really likes his monochromatic painting of Abe Lincoln, and I was excited when he told me that it would be on display at his school on the night of his jazz band performance. (He's a man of many talents!)

I knew he could draw, but holy cow! My jaw dropped and I let out a squeal when I saw his painting! I love it, love it, love it! So proud of my boy.

  5. Thank you all! LOL He doesn't have any selling plans currently, but I did go to Michael's today and buy him some acrylics, some canvas board, and brushes so that he can paint at home, too.

  13. Thanks! You know, I got him all the supplies but that little booger hasn't painted one stroke at home yet! I'm going to have to ask him about that.
