Budding Artists

Last evening I took the children outdoors along with their table, chairs and art supplies and they painted. I love the creativity they expressed and the different moods that each of their portraits contained. It was interesting to see their personalities come out in them, even at such a young age.

Finished Product:
Hannah, looking very pleased with herself

Nathan looking very serious

Was it messy? Of course! Was it worth it? Sure! They enjoyed it and it passed the evening in a pleasant sort of way. Besides, there's always the bathtub to get cleaned up in, right? :)
Now we can have some original art on our play/schoolroom walls.


  1. I LOVE this! And they really are artistic! So interesting to see their color choices and styles. =) Way to go!

  2. Hannah and Nathan, will you trade the pictures you are holding for Nana's homemade peach fruit leather with almonds and pecans??? Love the pics!

  3. Love the art they made!! So Cute!
