Here is the octopus painting he did for my mom:
Jason is really skilled at drawing. Up until recently, he hadn't done much painting, but when his mother and mine demanded a piece of artwork for Christmas, he got out the paint and brushes and went to town.
He sat in his little corner of the living room at a drawing table and worked on these for a few weeks before the holiday. This is proof that having a dedicated space in which to do your work is mandatory. If you are always thinking that you have to get out everything and put it away in order to eat dinner there, it's much less appealing of a concept.
This is the painting he did for his mom. It's titled "The AK goes Choppa Choppa Choppa." She didn't really know what to do with that, but I think she's really happy that he made her something.
Jason's New Year's resolution is to start his own blog and make one large scale piece of art per month. I say "YES". He better do it. I'm going to use this blog to publicly berate him if he doesn't.
