Braggin' Time

I've got to brag about Asher's painting that got 2nd place in the School ARt Show for the Kindergarten class unbeknownst to me. I just happened to be walking in the school to use the restroom and saw it on the wall!

This is also one of the paintings that I put in the art exhibit with mine this weekend. The other is a self portrait that I will share later.

So I had to get a 3x5 card ready with his name, name of the piece and media and I asked him what he called this painting and he said with a very serious tone "Caterpillar on Table". Makes sense to me :) Be still my heart... the nut doesn't fall too far from the tree ;)  sniff sniff...

Here's all I've done on Roses for the Dead... not too much but it's coming along.

Have a great weekend!

  1. aww Congrats to Asher!! Awesome caterpillar on the table!!... Your Roses for the Dead is coming along beautifully.. did you take a pic of your art hanging at the gallery?
    Off to work.. have a great day!

  2. Very well done to Asher!! To you also for nurturing a budding artist! Your roses are magnificent,I am having alot of trouble with roses at the moment.I love to see some pictures of the art show too.

  3. Love Roses for the Dead! One of your best! Asher's painting is truly remarkable for a fellow his age! I think you have a budding artist to encourage and guide. "Caterpillar on Table" makes sense to me also and I can see it! You should post more of his work so we can see him progress!

  4. love that caterpillar on the table! one of the best things about working in a school building is seeing all the kindergaren/first grade art on the walls. some of those paintings stop me in my tracks and make me say "I want to paint like that!!". with such abandon. - Karen (hey look I remembered to sign my name :)

  5. Well you tell Asher Congratulations from me--that's awesome!! Love how your Roses for the Dead is progressing.

  6. Congrats to your little budding artist! That is soooo great! :) He must be very proud to take after his talented mama. :)

  7. Hey Girl- I LOVE Asher's work! And the title is AWEsome! I remember one of my favorite things Caroline ever did was a painting of M&M's with teeth....the things these kids come up with!
    I KNOW you're one proud Mama, as well you should be!

  8. Congrats to your son for the 2nd place, and love your work in progress! I haven't been by in awhile but i was glad to hear of your good news from the mammogram!!! A big relief i'm sure!

  9. It is a special thing that you and Asher get to share a love of art making. It is sure to keep you close all through your lives ! Love that.

    Good luck with the show.
    Break a brush !;-)
