Eoin the artist

My son Eoin just turned 6. He's my eldest. On his birthday (the day before his party) he was in contemplative mood. A friend of his younger brother, Connor was having his birthday party and Eoin decided not to attend. He didn't want to see his friends, rather he said, "I want to see myself". He also said that afternoon that rather than wanting to be an artist when grownup, as he would often say, he said he WOULD be an artist.

Here he is aged 5 working on an image for his mum's birthday.
