Well, I got the house cleaned up (except for the studio and I just closed the door to it!) and the grandchildren arrived as promised. It was rainy so they couldn't be outside as they usually are. We went to a little park near us for a few minutes between rain drops then went to a brand new Dollar General store that opened in the tiny little town about 5 miles from us.
We'd given the kids some money and to my delight our granddaughter chose to buy a small paint set. So, when we got home, we sat at the kitchen island and painted. Our grandson is almost 5 and our granddaughter is 3 and it was a real hoot to watch them paint. I would post their paintings but they took all but some squiggles home with them. I was using some little pieces of Arches with the very cheap paint and managed to produce the goldfish above.
It came strictly from my imagination, no reference at all, and I think it came out pretty well. Of course, as pleased as I am with the fish, nothing is as good as spending quality painting time with the grandchildren!
