Saturday Morning Painting

On May 21st, Drew asked if he could paint something. Being that he isn't that interested in the whole artsy craftsy thing (Give him sports anyday) I was pleased that he asked and how could I say no, right?

So, I broke out the cheap paper and asked them what color of paints they wanted and let them go. See where JB is painting below?

That is just a card table covered with constructer plastic. Heavy duty stuff. I've painted there all year long and the paint was starting to build up on the plastic.

To clear off a fresh space for him we peeled up the dried up paint and set it aside. I learned from Bob Burridge that it makes great collage material.

While JB was painting happy faces, Drew painted a guy watching the clouds go by.

I painted the middle cloud per his request.

Below was JB's first happy face that I made him mess up. Leave him alone, Mom! Let him do it! So, I took over on this one though I'm pretty sure I didn't paint the tongue.

JB's other smiley face looks like the one below except later he added another feature. I need to photograph it! I painted something as well but my image was blurry. Check back.

It was a fun morning.

How magical!!! Sometimes we don't know what we can do, until someone puts it right in front of us. What a terrific way to share time. Digital cameras, blogging... priceless ways to see your memories!
