Budding Artist

Over the last 3 months or so, Benny has become very interested in drawing. Although "interested" is definitely an understatement. Maybe obsessed would be a better word. He wakes up every morning and the first thing he wants to do is draw. After school, I usually let the kids play outside for a while, and then they go down for quiet time. But Benny doesn't nap during quiet time anymore, instead he spends the entire 2 hours drawing. I supply him with paper and a pen, and then when quiet time is over, every day I'll walk into his room to find this...


He usually likes to draw Veggie Tale characters...

But lately, he's started drawing animals too...

Notice the shark, the ladybug, and um... that's a camel in the middle. lol! We're really glad he's found something that he enjoys so much, and we're trying to help nurture his love of drawing. We'll definitely help him develop his artistic skills and abilities, if this continues to be something he's passionate about. His Nana and his great-grandma Moore are extremely talented artists... so it's in his blood I guess. :)
Benny is truly a one of a kind little boy. He has such a tender and creative spirit. I'm excited to see what kind of unique contribution he'll make in this world. Whether it's drawing, or anything else he chooses, I know he'll give it his all, and do something great.
I love this little budding artist.

What great drawings! Wyatt went through a cutting phase. He would sit and cut paper into tiny pieces for hours, then save it all in a gallon ziplock. I had to cut him off when he started getting permanent hand cramps. LOL.

Wow! I am really impressed! I could tell that he was drawing veggie tales - he's really good! :) I like what you wrote about seeing what contributions he will make in life. I'd never thought about that for my own kids. Thanks for sharing your inspirational thoughts. :)
