The Ship - By Aaron

The Ship

By Aaron.
His first watercolor.
We weren't sure we wanted him to watercolor it.
His sketch was so nice we worried that it would get messed up if he put watercolors on it.
I  A.G.O.N.I.Z.E.D!!!!
I'm a wimp that way.
But he wanted to try it so..... we mixed some colors and practiced on a separate board and he took off..
And after I stopped being paranoid, I had a blast sitting next to my little son watching him work... helping him figure out colors, whispering encouragement, enjoying the moment. 

I mean this was his FIRST watercolor!


He blew me away.
No. I do not want to sell it.
Yes.  It is going up for auction.
Sunday.  February 1st.
Along with a whole host of other items.
