Lovely tho soccer is, I really have to give Michael more means to develop his art. He has a natural talent -- check out this sketch that he did in a hospital waiting room recently during the many trips we were taking with Mom; I think he doodled it out in less than five seconds (yep, on some legal pad I had in moi purse):
In another five seconds, he probably could have gotten as good as this from a Roman wall painting in Pompeii (around 70 AD):
I swear: with a little more training, Michael could probably achieve something as great as Caravaggio's "Basket of Fruit" (c.1599):
Yes, I know: as a proud Mama, Moi can be quite ... scarey ...
