Every parent thinks their kids are awesome. I am no more or less than the average mom. I just want to brag for a little while.
When he started this season out, he could not swim a 25ft race without stopping. He knew that to be in his age group, there was nothing less than a 50. Inspired by his older brother, he went to the pool twice a day every day. By the end of the season he had knocked nearly a minute off his freestyle and more than 20 second off his backstroke. He was told that if he worked hard at it he could be as good as his brother.
Well.. he may not be as fast, but he is definitely just as good.
The video tells the rest.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
