Pop art

My grandson did not want to paint with me. I finally talked him into painting an abstract/pop art of his mom. Her birthday is Monday. I used my persuasive personality to get him to paint her a personalized gift. He continued to argue that he couldn’t paint. Well I set him up with few colors basic sketch on canvas. Gave him a brief lesson on brush strokes different brushes and left the room. Occasionally I’d check on him and help him refresh his palette, offer a few pointers and leave again. He was actually surprised himself. A little encouragement and creativity , can build self esteem. He was very proud of this painting. His mom was “blown away”. She said, this is the best present she’s ever gotten.
