On Saturday my son finished his Mammoth painting and asked me if I would feature his work on my blog today. He was pretty proud of it. This first painting of his is of our chicken Penny. I love his chicken paintings, he painted 3 of our 5 backyard chickens. This kid can draw waaaaaaaay better than I could dream of. And to think that back in kindergarten we had a silly meeting to determine what we were going to do about his fine motor skills because he couldn’t hold a pencil correctly.
And here we have the mammoth scene that he loves. I love to watch him work, he doesn’t use any reference photos. Everything comes right out of his head.
Here he is in the studio. This cool dude will turn 16 later this month.
Another chicken. This one is named “Fluffy Buffy Cute Cute Eowyn Millward.” Can you guess who named it? Not Ethan.
This one is Ethan’s chicken, he named it Henny. Our chickens are named: Hennifer, Pennifer, Jennifer, Chipmunk, and Fluffy Buffy. They are a lot of fun and VERY silly.
Here’s Ethan’s Peregrine Falcon. Ethan is something of a naturalist. He’s an expert on many types of animals.
Ethan has been in love with dinosaurs for as long as I can remember. He has drawn them from all perspectives. I like the close up dino that looks like it’s looking at you.
For a while he was working on doing illustrations for a book about frogs. He has done several frog paintings. This one’s my favorite.
Ethan is building up his portfolio of drawings, cartoons, and acrylic paintings. His dream is to attend The Art Center in Pasadena. GO get em Ethan.
