When you give the sky to a kid and say "Go create!", you might just be amazed at what transpires.
My Son had a school project to produce a model of a robot. Had to be fully three dimensional and detailed. Had to have significant function as well.
I was getting a bit concerned when he started asking for drives to Home Depot, Canadian Tire and other hardware stores. The costs were starting to mount for a run of the mill school project, as they tend to go. One thing I know though, is when a kid has resources they can amaze you with their plans. So was the case for my son Fosters Robot. Little did I realize that out there in the garage was a fully functional robot that he would wear and become. He never let us see it till we came to his school for the science fair presentation. When I did arrive I was greeted at the main entrance by a life sized silver robot who was in fact my 12 year old, Foster. He was the star of the show. As he walked through the halls and around the other exhibits he drew crowds of fascinated onlookers.
I'm so proud of him. All of my kids amaze me with their creativity and this was Fosters turn at the bat.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
