The boy who drew birds

Daniel's bird print

Daniel's birds
There's a new print in my shop and I didn't paint it!
My 12 year old son Daniel made these amazing watercolor birdies
over the weekend & asked me if I could sell prints of them in my shop
to save up some money to buy his own art supplies so of course I said yes :)

Oh my goodness Geninne! Your son's watercolors are incredible! I love that he has your passion and talent for drawing beautiful birds. And even sweeter that he wants to save up for art supplies!

Great work Daniel! What a great artist he is becoming. I love his little birds. Especially that he labeled them as Fig. 1, etc. I'm so impressed with how you used Illustration Fridays to encourage their creativity. And was always even more impressed that they worked so independently of each other. I'm obsessed with Israel's Illustration Friday: Portrait. I think I've shown it to everyone I know. ;)
