My burgeoning artists

Eddie and Luke are turning out to be quite the artists. I'm really very impressed with both of them.

Luke has made the sudden leap from stick figures to more "fleshed out" characters, rather all at once. He's even gotten pretty realistic eyes on his characters and quite an attention to detail that wasn't there before.

In the picture at left, you can see a really awesome rendering of Kit Fisto, a Jedi from the Star Wars movies. If you're not familiar with the amazing exploits of Mr. Fisto, you can learn about him here.

Eddie, on the other hand, has shown a remarkable photographic visual memory to match his photographic memory for music and melody. He's always been able to hear a tune and sing it perfectly hours later–even complex melodies like Straussian waltzes, etc. The picture at right is a drawing he did in Sunday School last Sunday. He had been learning about China in school, and was playing with two of Becky's porcelain China doll statues, and hours later, completely from memory, he drew the picture of the doll. It is really unbelievable when you compare it against the photograph of the doll, below.
