Sam is only eight years old and he has just had his second art showing. Back when he was in kindergarten, one of his (yes, I’m going to call them) pieces was chosen to be put on display in a county-wide display of students’ art at a local mall.
This year, another of his pieces was chosen. This one:
Sam also wrote a little something to go along with it. He wrote: “I created a seascape. The mood of my seascape is calm and breezy. I showed this by making the waves wiggly. I used several techniques in my painting. (Masking; crayon resist; wet on wet and salting.) I showed depth in my painting by overlapping my boats. The smallest boat in the background does not have any details.”

From the looks of it, Sam is pretty proud too.
