How about my letters at the top of the tallest building in the world...

How about my letters at the top of the tallest building in the world...

I was pretty sure the tallest building in the world currently stands in Dubai, but I couldn't remember its name. I had to look it up. The Burj Khalifa stands 2,717 feet above the ground. Victor was super impressed by its size as he watched me draw it. What's more, he had seen the One Perfect Dive VISA commercial featuring this amazing building. He had me replay it over and over when he first saw it. It is quite an impressive commercial. Notice that his letters are on the building and the "T" is taking a dive!

I was a little impatient with this one as it took me much longer than I had anticipated. It was hard for me to capture the essence of the architecture of the building. What makes this sack memorable for me is that Victor decided to draw the boats in the water. I found an image of four simple boats and he drew the first two on the left before we ran out of time and had to rush out of the house. They look great and I made sure he knew how proud I was of his effort. It's great to see him start to copy his dad by giving it a go himself. He may very well learn to love art and drawing through this little project of ours. What a great gift that would be!

  1. Indeed! Giving the gift of art and showing it's OK to take time to simply create it.
