    so very cool!

  2. John says:

    Great picture, but I have to ask… Was that really his first pic or the first one he did that he is really, really showing off..:-)

    Question, did you take the picture with your new camera? In a previous post you mentioned that you just purchased a Nikon D40x. In any case the camera really does a great job of capturing his facial detail…Nicely done…

  3. Ardi says:

    first painting !!!!!!! simply Perfect.

  4. MammaLoves says:

    A dreamer? Looking at the stars…


  5. Chris says:

    No, this is my old camera. And this is his first painting on a stretched canvas.

  6. Jenn says:

    what an absolutely lovely painting!

  7. Growing in Grace (Nicole) says:

    I absolutely love the color in this painting. Very tranquil!

    Hey, isn’t that the kid you supposedly never write about? The haters are going to be up in arms about this, Chris. Next you’ll be saying he’s flesh-colored!

    (I amuse me. Also, nice work on the art there.)

  10. Heather says:

    Wow - I think that’s really awesome. Fabulous stuff. Maybe you’ve got a budding artist on your hands?

  11. Lilly says:

    Handsome boy and beautiful painting. I like the colors of North America, chilly Canada and the snowy north pole.

  12. charlie says:

    Love it!

  13. Jessica says:

    Neat :)

  14. MamaLady says:

    Another handsome young man. And a talented one too!
    Great painting. Are you going to frame it? Love all the blue.

  15. Laura/Amanda says:

    cute kid. You are such a fabulous mother!

    If you are ever in the Reston, VA area you should look me up!

  16. dcfullest says:

    He couldn’t look more like you!

  17. still standing says:

    Love it!

  18. Kellan says:

    That is fabulous! And that is some nice lookin’ boy!

  19. Mocha says:

    Does he do paintings on commission?

  20. Jeanne says:

    Mir is incorrect. He looks more rosy colored with flesh undertones.

    All is rosy in his world - his Mom, his art and he is handsome.

  22. Stephanie says:

    Wow…that’s something to be framed and displayed for all to enjoy for years to come!

  23. Jennifer says:

    It’s beautiful!

  24. dynamitt says:

    Just have to add I love your blog!

  25. Heather says:

    You have the most beautiful children.

  26. Shaylind Standing says:

    Great painting! He’s a very talented artist.

  27. elasticwaistbandlady says:

    Ooooh, it’s so Van Gogh-ish! You know like ‘Starry Night?’ You better make sure you keep all sharp instruments away from him in case he decides to trim off an ear or two.

  28. NMJ says:

    I like the way he showed only part of the earth but all of the moon, and all the different blues in the sky.

  29. Angela says:

    Gorgeous colors, love the painting, it definitely deserves to be framed. What a wonderful Mom you are to share his masterpiece, so sweet.

  30. elasticwaistbandlady says:

    I forgot to mention how cute as well as talented your boy is. He reminds me a lot of my very artisitic 11 year old daughter who also has dark eyes and hair.
