On Saturday morning before I got extremely sick Matt and I were out and about and I saw something I loved. At a decor store there was this painting on canvas of Santa and get this……they were selling it for $195. Yikes and no way! Matt said to me “I can do this” which I believed but even I didn’t know the extent of his talent or his determination.
While I was sick on the couch Saturday afternoon Matt left to run an errand and he came back with a canvas, paint, brushes and pencils………….he then spent the next 3 hours doing this……..You like our “make shift” easel?
Matt started by sketching the Santa ALL free hand! I knew that Matt was talented, in the past he even sketched one of his tattoos.
After the sketch was thru he started with the paint and I was starting to be amazed…………
And here you go, can you BELIEVE that Matt did this all by himself, no pattern>??? Matt’s talents continue to amaze me, and this blew me away………I mean this looks professional to me!
We hung his new painting in our kitchen for the Holidays and when he was done all he said was “that was fun”! It is funny how it seems that an artist is trapped inside his former college baseball player and current Insurance man body!
I would say that this painting is worth way more than the $195 we originally saw it for because this was made with love!
