WORDLESS & WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

This is my son Eli's most recent painting he took home from art class on Monday. He did do this similar painting last year, but since two of his friends are taking the same class now, he decided to do the same one as them. I love it just as much as his first lighthouse painting!

But, he was upset when he came home because his friend accidentally spilled water on his painting (on the grass area). He fixed it when he got home, but I think because of the work and heart he puts into it, he just felt like it was ruined. I told him that it was beautiful and unique..just like him!

If you want to see his other paintings I posted, you can click here, and here.

He'll be 9 in June, and he says he wants to be an architect!
