Amir loves painting

It seems like such a long time ago now, but I used to spend my weekends teaching arts and crafts to the children in my neighbourhood. I did it for a couple of years, but then things got really hectic when I was completing my Masters Degree, and I decided to concentrate on freelance writing instead.

Also, as my son Amir had started preschool, I wanted to spend my weekends playing with him, helping him with his school work and giving him one-on-one art lessons. And so, once in a while, we would break out the paints and brushes, and Amir would paint up a storm! Here are some pictures of the artist at work. I took them during our last painting session.

Amir usually paints at the dining table, as it's near the window.

He loves dinosaurs, which is what this painting is about. Just look at those vibrant colours and that strong sense of symmetry! Oops, the art critic in me just got out!

Invest in a scanner. Upload his work to a Blog and I think it is something memorable when he grow up
