My Son’s Birthday

Watch me paint “My Son Praying“, time lapse video

Today is my son’s birthday, so I thought I’d share one of my oil paintings of him. He’s also part of a special book called Grandpa Smiles, and a video of him is in this blog post: “I’m Superman!”

We celebrated with cake, presents and pizza. Another year done, and another year blessed to have him as my son. Every day is precious. Hug your loved ones tight.

“Fred”

art oil painting FRED book cover by Natalie Buske Thomas

FRED

“A Little Girl with a Big Imagination”

     “Fred” is a collection of oil paintings that was published as a children’s book to inspire creative children to always believe in yourself and to never give up.

     Fred is the nickname that Natalie’s father called her. Apparently the story goes that one day when Natalie was three years old, she announced that her name was no longer Natalie, but Fred. No one knows why and Natalie has no recollection of this incident, but her father honored her wishes and never called her Natalie ever again, always Fred.

This oil painting of “Fred” (peeking behind the fire hydrant) was inspired by a black and white picture that her late father took when he was enrolled in a photography course. This was taken on Grissom Air Force base, where he was stationed. Watch more art from the Fred book come to life:
