Artist of the Week: Shapes
I like this picture of Nate despite not being able to see most of his face. He wants o have long hair and it invariably flops over his eyes and covers a goodly portion of his face when he is looking down. However you can see his smile and such a sweet smile it is.
Nate loves dogs and puppies even more so. When he is out in the world and on his own I know he'll get a dog as soon as possible. I just can't imagine him not ever having a dog. He is very kind and gentle with the puppies when we go see them. At home I'll often find him stretched out on the floor holding Dell.
He can be such a gentle soul.
He is fascinated by all things military. Most of his games and drawings center around war. So it was no surprise to me when he brought home this particular piece of art a few weeks ago.
The assignment was to create a picture by just using simple shapes. Nate created three fighter jets racing across a cloud filled sky with just rhombuses, hexagons and triangles.
The jets are exclusively made with rhombuses and the result very effectively captures the essence of the jet. I think it a pretty neat piece of art.
