Check the purse...she is always carrying one around the house. Did a really great art activity later on in the evening on our newly cleaned, pressure washed back porch which had become a place where things go when they are no longer needed but you're too lazy to take them off somewhere. I also pressure washed the back and front of the house as well as the massive front deck. But enough about that...I got sidetracked. Ice Painting...yes, you must needs try this with your children. It makes , once the ice melts a little, the most beautiful watercolor paintings and it's cheap. Fill ice trays with water. Drop in food coloring, go nuts with the colors. Stick popsicle stick in em and freeze. Take out in 4-5 hours or so and have a blast with your kids...I encourage you to join in with them and make your own masterpiece, it helps your kids to get excited about it too. When you're done, pop em back in the freezer for next time.
This is Jackson confused that I won't let him eat the paint...If it looks like a popsicle it is a popsicle logic, you know.
My photography professor during my brief stint in community college would have had a cow over this picture. She had no tolerance for people who didn't check the composition of a picture (for example, a click happy photo junkie who shot a self portrait in front of a pole and it looked like I had a bad accident at an Olympic javelin competition.) This picture would have surely sent her to her grave, but I think it's kinda funny. A little more shadow and Jack would've had a fro that would've made James Brown run home cryin' to his momma!
Man, I have no lick of artistic talent, but I can still call it art, right? Dad, I'm not complaining cause I got the music genes, but couldn't you have given me some of the artsy gene as well?Now really, this one is super, I think and I was very proud. I'll call it "Mountain in the Sunset" for lack of a better title.
