Disclaimer: This is a shameless plug for my artist brother Keith. He is amazingly talented. But don’t take my word for it. Let these photos speak for themselves.
I highlight the NOT in the title because a recent newspaper article about him opened by stating that he is a self-proclaimed world famous artist. The world famous thing was actually a joke on his part as you can see by his sign below 😉 But hey, if he gets enough publicity, maybe he will become world famous.
I have been into silly little poems as of late. Bear with me here for one more 😉
Nelson may not be world famous
But his talent is second to none.
If you’d like an elephant in your living room.
He’d be happy to paint you one.
Do you own a classic Duesenburg
Or motorcycle that you treasure?
If you have some extra cash to spare
Painting a likeness would be his pleasure.
Or maybe it’s classic Hollywood
That puts a smile upon your face
Dean, Monroe or Presley
In your home you could showcase.
You can look Nelson up on facebook
Or if your passing through Polk City, Iowa
Stop and see him on the square.
And to answer the question I always field after showing someone my brother’s art: No, I am not artistically talented. Unless you count doodling. I can doodle with the best of them.
