Our family knew it anyway, the boy is officially an artist as evidenced by this "Artist's interview."
And I, still learning, am one informally. In my college days, rejected from the art program because my portfolio was deemed too commercial, I met a successful entrant. He painted a spectacular watercolour autumnal leaf. Wow, my 17-year-old self thought, I wish I could paint a leaf. 40 years later I think I've done it, although those two water droplets took four tries.
