Making Memories and Art
Our visit to our son's family in Utah was wonderful but I ended up in time out.
We took a time out to create some art
Did you think I was in some sort of trouble?
We had some pretty cool paper I got at Preston Art Center,
in Louisville, KY.
It's lined like first grade paper on the bottom and it's plain on the top, so you can paint a picture and then tell a story about it.
I've never used water color before, (because I'm afraid of it),
so we did a fair amount of playing.
Karen, my granddaughter drew a lot of her favorite things and painted them.
Then she drew a picture of her mom behind the house.
She wrote on her paper "There's a mom behind the house".
She was much more profound than she knew.
I also bought one of those water color brushes that has the water in it.
That was lots of fun.
More on those later.
