My son the artist

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
~Pablo Picasso

My youngest son Andrew. An aspiring artist living in Chicago.

He does painting, silk screening, plays bass guitar and has a degree in Philosophy from Loyola University of Chicago. He is my "Renaissance" son. I am so proud that he is taking after me and pursuing art.

He first really got interested in it while spending a semester in Rome. Now he is traveling to Paris next week for a week. I love the light in this picture.

He set the picture up himself with his camera and self timer. I just love it.

Andrew you are an amazing son.

Hopefully like Picasso says, my Andrew will remain an artist. !!!!


  1. oh I know you are proud and excited for him.
    what adventures he has had and is having!!

    Great photo!!!

  2. Great photo! And no doubt, Andrew will find his way just as you did.

  3. Thanks Laure and Mary. He is "my son" in so many ways. Appreciate the compliments

  4. Thanks for passing by my blog and leading me here. Your son looks quite the master! That's a great photo!

  5. Tell Andrew to have fun in Paris.
    I wish I could have gone there but alas the action was in SE Asia so I flew there instead.
    Actually got to the point of not liking Hawaii after 20 or so trips through it.

  6. Beautiful photo, so artistic.
    Like Mother like son!
    Paris! what a dream.

  7. That is one of my favorite quotes by Picasso and I have used it often! Love the photo of your son and thanks for sharing.

  8. He looks like a very young "old master painter".
    Love the light in the well done.
