Paul, you tell that handsome young man that this retired art teacher thinks he's very talented and hopes he'll continue to do great things with all that talent.

He's like my right hand. He is off on Tuesday and calls faithfully to see if I need a hand with anything. His brother Jory is a big help also.

What a lovely painting! Cade is a very handsome young man, and he even looks artistic.

I have an iris painting too, that I need to show off as soon as I can get a picture.

He did a great job on that. I suspect that's not what he typically uses for a subject ? Hilarious!

But I've certainly been wrong before!

Pastels?
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.
