Just gotta brag a bit....

Brag on my baby boy!

My son Nathan has been rediscovering all his talents lately.
He has a natural talent for the gift of music and has taught himself
to play guitar, harmonica, mandolin, and now violin or fiddle
depending on what part of the country your from!  lol
He has just started trying his hand in oils and canvas too.

Lately he has gone back to younger days and started drawing and using a pencil
and sketch book (electronic style)
When he was little he would draw stick figures and make all the sound effects to go with!
About a month ago Nathan posted pictures on his facebook page saying he was going
to keep doing this until he gets it right!  Then he said that he hope to do a
children's comic book somehow. He is a kid at heart and always will be! 
Here are a couple of those pics.

The other day he posted about sixty pictures he has recently drawn.
As his Proud Momma, I loved them all!
You can see by these he doesn't have just one style.

Here is one I just fell in love with!  It is just so fun and whimsical.

Begin a quilter, I see things and think FABRIC!
So I just had to create this little guy from my stash!

Not having that artistic gene my son has, nor having much experience
in thread painting, and this type of quilting, I think I did pretty good. 
I did goof up on his eyes but it's ok.
All I know is I had a great time putting this together. 
I posted it on my facebook page
and Nathan thought it was pretty cool!  So all is good.

I hope y'all didn't mind my bragging on my baby boy just a bit!
Hopefully some of these drawings brought a smile to you
as they do for me!

Wow! I also love the kitty. I am totally impressed, as I cannot draw a straight or curvy line, LOL!
