Sam's Self-Portrait

Sam has long been obsessed with crafts.  His craft fetish runs so deep that Joy and I often joke that he was obviously born to the wrong family as neither one of us crafts for our artistic outlet.  But we have learned to cope, creating a desk drawer full of scratch paper he can draw on and cut and tape to his heart's content, asking for craft supplies and tips from his crafty Aunt Misty, and celebrating this aspect of his personality even if it mystifies us.

Recently Sam has moved into representational drawing as part of his artwork.  He draws Joy, me, Noah, dinosaurs and trains, and other important objects and people in his world.  And right before Thanksgiving, he produced his first self portrait:

Picasso would be proud.
