"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
- Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

A couple days back when it was ridiculously hot here for April, (105!) I pulled out the paints to keep the kids and myself distracted from the heat.

It was Gwendolyn's first time painting and she fully enjoyed it with happy concentration.

Gabriel was focused as well

But kids will be kids and you can't make are with out being silly and having some fun!

Ah to be a kid again! :D

Gabriel fluctuated between focused concentration, and...

complete silliness, which is what I love about him. He's always making us laugh and smile with his silly faces and antics.

Gwen was focused too, though she gave up early on the paper and decided to paint the table instead, hey, they're both white right?

but with a bowl of paint in your lap it's just too much fun to paint whatever happens to be around at the moment...

yes, that includes the bench and legs and knees...
