Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

21 May


A kindergartener's work of art.

My son’s self-portrait


It doesn’t look like much to many people, but to me … it’s a work of art.

    What an artistic drawing by your son. Looking at it, I feel..happy πŸ˜€ It’s like the character your son drew is reaching out to me and wanting to give me one gigantic hug. Maybe this is a drawing of you?

      Dude totally made me think he was painting a I’m-gonna-give-you-a-gigantic hug right now. I definitely thought it was a work of art πŸ™‚ Made me smile.

    I so agree with you. It is a beautiful, priceless work of Art. Innocent, happy, hopeful, optimistic. It’s an Art coming from the heart and as a parent, I knew pretty well that seeing such a masterpiece make us feel like on cloud 9 with our smiles extending close to our ears. Your little Picasso is truly gifted. All the best to you and your family.

      Isn’t it? I thought you would definitely appreciate it because I bet your son has some awesome pieces that make you smile every time you see it because they remind you of what an awesome kid he is. I was definitely on cloud nine when I saw this. He made me proud.
