Art in the Middle

It is a running joke with my students that I cannot draw a circle. Unfortunately it is often necessary for a math teacher to draw circles. The very best of my attempts end up looking like eggs - and really pathetic eggs at that! I just laugh right along with them and say, "There's a reason I teach math and not art!"

The artwork above is by my middle child, age 12 - merely some doodles he was doing in the car one day. It is clear that he gets his "art genes" from his father and not his mother!

Wow! I'm impressed with my middle nephew's artistic "doodles"! Way to go, J!

It is indeed an art work. I can see that he likes things very well defined. Please tell him that he might have a future as a visual artist.
