Pretty good. How old is Isaac again? I think he's about the age I was when I started with oils.

Isaac is 11...

I'm not a painter myself, so there's been a family learning curve with the oils. Like... he probably shouldn't do it closed up in his bedroom if we plan on breathing during the following few days. And oils don't really come out of clothes or bedspreads. Or brushes. Huh? Turpentine? Agh, so much to learn...

Colored pencils are much more user-friendly...

Proud of him though!

Whoa, awesome. I've never used oils, but they're not very easy to use I hear. He did such an amazing job. It's hard to believe he's only 11! Crazy amount of talent. All of them have a crazy amount! It's wonderful. ^_^

Lily's "Muddy
Gracie's "Snazzy"
