Artists in China - Getting our portraits done.

A few weeks ago we had our portraits done, not be one of these fly by night Chinese artists that sit at all the crowded markets, but from one of our friend's children. That's right, when last we were over at the Mexicans their youngest, Pax, decided that he would do some quick drawings of us.

Here is the artist with the drawings that he drew of us, after he first presented them to us we had him sign them for us. We can see these being worth something once this child becomes famous for whatever it is he'll end up doing....

Not bad for a five year old child, no?

And, just because we know you are wondering, we scanned these drawings in for all of you to look at. I love how he truly captures the depth and color of Tina's eyes.....

Wow-the wonderful artist ability of a 5 year old.
It reminds me of all the pictures I have saved that you did when you were young. . . . all the ones you can't understand why I save!
Maybe I should pull them out and put them back on the refrigerator.

I think that I'll call you on that one, as I don't think that you could find the old drawings that I did back when I was but a small child....

You've got a few months, pull them out and we can have a few laughs while looking at them when we are back for the holidays.
