Another Genius Kid by Pete and Leigh . . .
John Hale Art
Okay, okay, as if they weren't satisfied with all the envy generated by having produced two genius kids -- novelist Ben Hale and musician James Hale -- my old Ozark friend Pete Hale (physicist) and his wife Leigh (soon to be PhD, English literature) simply had to produce another genius, their third son, John Hale, who's into art:
Last-and-final kid John is an art maniac, as I believe you have some considerable experience with, too! He lives it and breathes it, so I cannot complain about him not having a "passion," that's for sure. (More like complaining about the incessant need for more canvases and pricey oil paint . . . heh.) I can't remember if I've sent you this link before or not, but you can see a lot of his stuff at this Facebook site.By my "considerable experience with" art, I presume Pete is referring to the art blog of my son, En-Uk, but I wouldn't want to invite comparisons, for there's a universe of difference. Pete hadn't told me much about John's art interest, nor was I previously aware of the Facebook site mentioned above, but I've looked and seen that the art looks great. That image above -- a self-portrait? -- is representative, making John a very mature fifteen-year-old.
Take a look yourself . . .
