Louis brought with him his art homework to finish. He's created a repeat pattern of golden jellyfish which have been filled in using those smeary coloured pencils. The whole A3 sheet has taken him hours to do. Both of us are pleased with it.
I've shown this as encouragement to anybody else out there who, like my son, says they can't draw. Sure, this pattern is naive like his other work that adorns the door of my motorhome . He's probably never going to be someone who can produce life-like realism at the drop of a hat. But that doesn't stop him being creative. And that is something that I'm really dead keen to foster.
