The artist is my granddaughter and her model is her little friend. This past weekend I was in an art show and she enjoyed going around and finding her grandma's paintings. Her mom, my daughter, sent me this today and said she is so proud of her grandma. :) Such a talented artist for age 6, wouldn't you agree? She really captured the pose, the dip in his shoulders, arms coming off the shoulders. Having taught kindergarten and first grade, children often draw arms coming out the sides of the body and... am I bragging? Isn't that what grandmas do? Love it!
