WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

This is the current painting my son, Eli (who will be 10 next month), brought home from his art class. I think this is his 9th one thus far.

Do you remember the song "Sail On" by The Commodores? That's what I think of when I look at this.

Wow, you are going to have to dedicate a wall to all of his art. This one is wonderful. He is a budding artist for sure.

Oh, I have an idea. You should print out his art work and turn them into tiny magnets for your family.

WOW! That is a stunning painting! Worthy of framing, for sure!

What a beautiful God gifted talent :-)

Alyssa said...

I love it! Lucky, lucky you to have such a talented son.

RoseBelle said...

Oh my, how old is your son? That is really beautiful. He even included two birds in the background. I hope you frame them and put them up. My little girl drew me a picture which I just posted. Ermmm...let just say, I will laminate it and show it to her when she's older.

Soooo beautiful! I can imagine sailing and relaxing...I love the reflection and the colors! Eli, you created an amazing piece of art!
I definitely remember that song...one of my favorites...my hubby posed to this for one of his body building competitions---back when we were just dating :o)

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment. My hubby and I had a wonderful time up at my dad's (the 26 hour drive to my dad's from our home in Georgia to his home in Wisconsin was well worth it :o) Thank goodness though for the midway stop to sleep and visit with our kids who are all at college in Kentucky :o)

It was straight back to work for me, so haven't had a minute to catch up really on blogging, but I want to try to reply to the wonderful comments left on my N post.

Blessings & Aloha!
