Talent and Creativity

The Dude took first place with his oil painting at both the Chatham County fair and the North Carolina State fair. This was his very first painting EVER - let alone the intricacies of paining in oils. This painting is what he created during his first lesson (not after, but during).

We are very proud of him! His talent and creativity just keep flowing. Just think he is only 14 yrs old.

  5. wow, an awesome painting. I used to paint with oils when I was in my teens. My grandmother got me into it.
    It is fun to enter things in the fair. My kids used to do it too. So exciting to win a ribbon.
