Thank you moon, we're pretty damn proud of our little man. He's got a ton of 'undiscovered' work that's pretty impressive too.

that's cool, man. some kids can just do it and love it. my buddy and i growing up always drew and painted, but his stuff was always so much better than mine. so i got discouraged and quit. he has continued, and now supplements his income by selling his artwork. he knows he can't make a living off of it, at least for quite some time...but anyway, the point is, a little encouragement is all someone needs. and if he's winning contests, then that burden is far from falling on your shoulders. ;-D

Well it's far from a burden to encourage my son, but I see what you're saying. Artistic ability runs in my family. Our family's homes are decorated pretty thoroughly with artwork done by great-great relatives and more recent pieces. I had it, but like you, gave it up. I won some contests when I was young too, but found other things to do when I got older.
My mother, I'm told, was possibly the best artist of all of our family. She painted a picture for a TV news station to display in the little window next to the report. If I get a chance, I'll post it here. It will blow your mind. I'll give a warning before though. It'll probably be pretty big.

Alright, here it is. It's probably going to come out pretty big, and I couldn't seem to take the picture without the flash, so I took it at an angle.

I despise modern art.

Some of it looks cool. But looking cool does not equal art.

The only thing I hate more than modern art is modern artists trying t explain their work.

Abstract art can be done by anyone. I think it's a bunch of bull but I guess if anyone will buy it.
I'm going into design but that's a lot more structured. I'll probably decorate my house with things I've done but
I don't think I'll ever buy any artwork...

and ORS, you could probably shrink that a bit ;) :-o
