Up and coming artist

This is our grandson Ben , I might be seeing something that others don't see but I see an artist in the making.

First here is Ben with a piece of fence post that he found behind the garage. And I thought "That's a boy for you" Lugging logs around.

But then later I here him call for his Mom and me to come see the "Sculpture"( His word) that he was making. He had put the fence post up on end and found a quartz rock, covered it with a dry leaf and as I watched he said that it needed some "color", so he pulled up some grass and sprinkled it on top.

Then he was off looking for a flower for some more color.

Here is Ben with his first work of art.

Excellent! The sculpture is now outside by the front door. He has checked on it to make sure it was ok. It is. Great blog...of course I'm a little bias :)

I believe you are right! Excellent natural eye for composition, and of course, he comes from very artistic stock!

i just love his raised eyebrow and the smile of satisfaction on the last shot! He is quite the individualist, has a good sense of art and you and Becca must be so proud of him!
