Eat To Draw

My son Fenix, who is born in April 2015, is a constant instrument in my growth as a person, parent and artist. I started to let him paint and doodle at 13 month old and he has since gotten quite confident at it! 

By jamming together, he actually reverses the roles and teaches me patience, compassion and to let go of control/judgement, trust the process, have fun and not criticise. At one time, he wanted to paint and was creating splotches of his abstract art in gouache and acrylic paint. My first thoughts were “oh my so messy!” Then I stood back and reflected on his works while he had already moved on to his toys. One of them begged for a closer look and I saw the ‘Tin Man With A Heart” - he who thinks too much but cannot feel.I also added my interpretation to his other abstract art and it became a lobster. 

For more of his baby artworks, check out the hashtag #whatthekiddraws on Instagram.
