A Step Closer to Reese's Dream...

3 years 9 months old he started drawing... who would have taught he can draw so well!
 Reese's dream is to have his own solo art exhibition one day. Ever since we created his Facebook page, we have lots of encouraging messages and comments about his art. We even have people asking whether his work is for sale. Reese has been called a prodigy and even a genius but at the end of the day, he is still a child. Our sweet beautiful child.

We have been approached recently to have some of his art to be on display in an artelier in Penang. We are busy scouting for a good frame shop to conserve and frame some of his artworks to be sent to Penang. It is an investment. From there, we will be working closely with the owner of the artelier towards a solo exhibition. We have been encouraged to sell his artworks but for now we have no such plans. All we want is to give Reese some exposure in the art scene.

We hope to educate Reese about the value of his artworks and a possible path towards becoming a real artist. We want him to understand why people are interested in what he is doing and eventually selling his artwork to fund his art materials(slowly moving towards art materials used by professionals) and building a nest for his future!

Reese is very protective of his artworks. A mere mention about selling them, he will immediately said that they are not for sale. He only wants to have an exhibition to showcase his art! 

Yesterday in the car, Reese said:

"Mummy, I don't want to be famous. I only want my art to be famous."

Recently we were interviewed by The Star and the article will be out this Sunday in the StarEducate pullout. Do look out for it! :)
