Most of the time when I go out without the kids, I bring DeLaynie something back. This small gift never costs more than a dollar (plus tax), and it's just a way of letting Dee know that I love her, and I want to be her favorite. I'm just kidding on the last part... sort of. ;) The last thing I brought home was one of those paint pallets that you dip a wet paintbrush into. You then spread the slightly tinted water over your page to create a masterpiece. This kept DeLaynie entertained for two days of art time. Then almost all of the paint was gone, and she was thoroughly bored. She did very well with the concept, and caught on quickly. Here are a few shots of her most prominent piece:
This is how I originally had it on the fridge. Then it occurred to me that I may be putting my budding artist in a box, so I rotated it a few different ways to see if it moved me differently.
Anything? Me neither. I'd love for you to post comments on what you see. The last one looks a little like a clown taking off his hat. What I really see is a precious two year-old having a good time. That's one of the prettiest pictures I can think of.
