stealth, speed and strategy

You just never know what you're going to find here. This blog was started, ostensibly, to chart the progress of my painting and discuss my process but has become so much more (or less, depending on your point-of-view). Today, for example, we have a couple of photos of the boys at their last fencing lesson, with #1 son taking on his teacher, Monica. Hard to tell by his height, but he's only 12. (No, this is not turning into the dreaded bragging-about-kids blog. I promise.)

After the daily lesson and bouts Monica takes on the six kids in a melee. (#1 son's the tall one; #2 son is in grey.)
She dispatches the first three quickly.

Finally, it's all up to #1 son to hold up the team's end.
And in an amazing move of stealth, speed and strategy, he wins it all! The crowd goes wild! (Okay, his pathetic mother manically snapping pictures in the corner claps and cheers -- just enough to embarrass him again.) Does it get any better than this? :)

I love sports.

Hey, into every artist's l life there are kids or cats. Fencing...looks like fun. My brother would have loved this. Instead he was Mr. Karate man at the same age. Love your work and your pics on Flickr!

Andrea, I can't believe it; I was just playing around with this blog thing, and before I knew it I got a half dozen responses. Imagine that! Well I suppose I'll consider adding a bit more to it and see what comes up.
I'm curious which photo you may consider using. Though it really doesn't matter. Actually It may be best to wait and see what you do with it.

Take care
