the first lesson......

There's an old saying....."when the student is ready.. the teacher appears"...So....with colors at hand....

The objects staged just so....
The teacher....(with frail shaky hands)... present with enthusiasm......
And most importantly... the eagerly inpatient student awaiting......

Father and son sat down for the first lesson on painting with oils....
Much was discussed... even more demonstrated.... of course the ever present photographer (yours truly) buzzing about them.... swaying to the tunes of Eva Ayllon (our fave Peruvian diva, check her out.)
A good day was had!

love and peace

  3. Ah a perfect day. Your photos are wonderful, and your sons are just so beautiful. I know I said that already, but it doesn't hurt to say it again does it.
