Our Artist

Last night was Tucker's special night - as I mentioned yesterday, one of his drawings was selected to be put on display at a local art gallery.  To celebrate his accomplishment, we took him out for dinner at our most favorite chinese restaurant in Hallowell - Lucky Garden.

After dinner, we walked down to the gallery.






We spent quite a bit of time walking around admiring the art.  I absolutely love kid art.  It is full of life and created without restraint.  

Then we spotted Tucker's drawing. 




I also knew that Stacy's son had a piece selected as well, so we went on looking for his.  We looked quite a bit but then I spotted it - right next to Tucker's.  




In talking to one of the curators, she explained that display represnted 22 local schools grades K-8, and only 9 students from each school were selected from each school.  It is quite an accomplishment for all of the children who had a piece of art selected by their art teacher.  I am proud of all these little budding artists. 

And before I forget - Photo Of The Day #17 is Green.  





With temps nearing the 70's today, I was quite happy to slip into these comfy Keens today.
