I have posted blog page links for each of my two sons, below. We love to paint together, and they have become quite prolific in their paintings, so it was time to compile the works.
Portrait of Bob Ross by Tyler
Tyler is my 6 year old and he is my little shadow. He loves to paint and always has a story to tell about the painting as he paints. Tyler’s abilities seem to be growing by leaps and bounds. He’s painted since he was a little peanut, but is getting so big and is just soaking up the knowledge. I’m very proud of him and can’t wait to see what he creates in the future. He can read very well, so please feel free to comment on his paintings. He loves to get comments!

Paintings By Thomas – Art Blog
Thomas is my 8 year old, going on 18. At times he’s momma’s smidgling, and at other times he’s so grown up I wonder where my baby has gone. Thomas beats to the drum of 100 different drummers in his head and it amazes me daily how his mind works. He’s a very literal thinker, so it’s been wonderful watching him get more and more expressive and creative as he paints. His favorite theme is space / movement. Come and visit his page! He’d love to read your comments.

Music has always been an important part of my life and I find someon being lost in a song incredibly beautiful. The world blurs away, the music feels deeper…bigger.

This little acrylic was painted of my cup of tea in the sun in the windowsill, with the winter snow behind. I loved the appearance of the blue bottle and sugar bowl behind. The reflections were gorgeous and I couldn’t resist painting this little still life.

This is a series of 5 drawings of different moods/settings including moon/apple/chicken subjects. The series from 1 to 5 shows the chicken’s life stages aging while the apple tree’s life cycle in reverse, and through it all, the moon sees it all. A fun little fictional project.
