I picked up a bunch of canvases over the weekend and started laying down the paint.
I'm working on three of them. Usually, I have a clear idea of what I'm going to paint, but I've been taking a more spontaneous approach lately. I've even gone as far as simply closing my eyes and blindly picking a paint color. Basically, I'm giving myself up to the fun of improvisation!
Obviously, the paintings are in their infancy right now. I'm looking forward to seeing where they end up.
I recently painted the one below with my cousin Brianna (she's 3 1/2). She happily smeared paint all over the canvas. I think her favorite part, however, was spraying the canvas with water. She couldn't get enough of that. My favorite part was listening to her explain (very seriously) to Jonathan about each step we took to create the painting. It was really, really cute.
