Ben's First Studio Work of 2009

Ben went back to work yesterday after a lengthy sabbatical. Needless to say the painterly skills he has learned came back quickly. It's like riding a bicycle now!

Seriously Ben is amazing to watch. I've included a short video from yesterday as well. Not only is our son getting bigger but his images are getting more developed and complicated. He worked on four canvases yesterday, completing two. I plan to leave both of those alone because both have imagery that absolutely amazes us!

It is obvious that the blessed receiving of the HP Touch Smart Computer has been an influence on our son. There are moments that we are just overwhelmed at what Ben understands and wants to achieve - that has been made clear to everyone working with him since he received that wonderful gift. I promise to update more as we adapt his equipment so that he can use it more proficiently. Once again, we cannot thank Casey and The Moosh enough!

We hope you enjoy Ben's new studio work!

Working with red.

Aha! An idea!

Thinking.

Another idea with a red nose!

Time for work!

Flutter - Vicki sent a pic to Joan on her cell. She wrote back that he looks like Chuckie II. And...

Gert - She signed that text mess as "Mommie Dearest!" I also say "No wire hangers!" a lot here!

KK - A long time! Days even. Joan will come home from work and know he's been painting.

He really is a joy to watch, Bennie! Even though I'm a different type of "artist", I still feel very inspired watching him create. :)

Go Ben! You can't keep a true artist down, can you?
