Quit now, if you hate reading about other people's grandkids!


Here are my two tousle-haired, blond, N London based, grandsons again. 

So why, you might ask, is Harvey J making silly faces and looking so smug? And why is little Ollie looking so proud of his big brother?

Well it's because Harvey J has recently won the prestigious Henry Moore sculpture competition for his age group. And, below, is his winning entry. 


A fine looking Sheep! Well done Harvey J...... That'sa ma boy!

Sorry about the photo, I had to enlarge it from tiny.

  2. Mind you it is lucky he isn't as artistic as his great-aunt - I have trouble drawing stick men!!!!

  8. Obviously got some of your artistic talent Cro.
    I've seen worse sheep in so called hand made shops.
    Well done to your Grandson and he's every right to look smug.
    As for posting about them, carry on they are a lovely looking pair.

  10. What a character your winning artistic grandson looks, and how strange that you should mention Henry Moore. I've just posted a photo of a Henry Moore sculpture, that stands - as a sheep might - on a grassy hillside. Well done Harvey lad :-)

  11. Whooo Hooo Cro - very impressive. I see the artistic genes have passed themselves on to this generation too!

  14. Brag on Cro. We all love to gush about our progeny, and rightly so. It is one of the best things in life.

  15. That's what being a Grandparent is all about, Bragging rights!!! Brag on. What an awesome sculpture! You can be assured your artistic talent gene has been passed on.

  16. Well, now you've done it. I think I'm in love. I like the sheep too.

  17. No wonder he won the prize! Like Great Aunt Susan, i have trouble drawing stick people. I, too, thought of Wallace and Grommit. Very well done, Harvey, and i love how Ollie is thrilled for his brother.

  18. Obviously a chip off the old block! Well done Harvey J - I look forward to future exhibits.

  19. Now if Harvey J. could only get his sculpture to produce milk, he'd be a shoo in for any upcoming Science Fair as well.
    (and I don't believe he looks silly in that photo. He is obviously sheepish)

  20. Those are two gorgeous boys. The sheep is a classic and very well conceived and produced. Definitely a well deserved prize. Good gene pool! After 4 years I will see my eldest grandson again at the end of next week. Nothing better for lifting the spirits!

  22. Brilliant! Well done Harvey J.

  23. Your grandkids are gorgeous! And I love the sheep. I'm a fan of Henry Moore. Growing up in Toronto, I spent a lot of time gazing upon The Archer, which resides outside City Hall. THe Art Gallery of ONtario has a great collection of his work.

    Congrats to Harvey!
