It always feels like it's my birthday when I go to the post office and find letters and pictures sent by readers. Yesterday, I was delighted to receive this beautiful collection of watercolor paintings! These were painted the boys in 9-year-old Henry's book club, a book club he does with his artist grandmother, Maura. Isn't it wonderful to have a grandmother who values books and art?
My thanks to Henry, Henry's book club buddies, and Maura for sending me these treasures. I'm reminded of a favorite quote...
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo PicassoI have a feeling that these boys stand a good chance of remaining artists. :)
