Something New

 So, a painting friend of mine has threatened to take me off her blog roll if I don't post something new.  I think she was joking, but it was a good kick in the pants, either way, so here's something new!  I took my kids out with me plein air painting the other evening.  Here they are, at the beginning:
Evan wore that brush down to the ferrule, in about 10 minutes.
 
Here he is, off to the races, still in an apron...

Here's what they created in their other medium: sticks and dirt...

And why should one slide down when one can climb up?

....and then climb down!

Here's what I did, in between kid assistance.
It was a successful session!

Hi Rachel,

Yes, I was kidding. It is nice to have you back on my blog roll.

I knew that, of course, but it made for great literary content, huh! ;-)

I love the painting you did...but I must admit I love those adorable little kiddo's even more.

Shhh... you're not supposed to say that on my painting blog! Seriously, I must've felt the same, given the ratio of images. :)
