Painting: Not Just for Paper

While purging organizing some outdoor toys this weekend Wayne came across an art easel that he wanted to toss, which immediately made both of our girls want to use it. We pulled out our two art easels and set up the paints and paper for some outdoor studio time.

Lindsey began with a butterfly -- nice!

Then she decided to copy the same butterfly design on her hand.

I didn't get a chance to take a picture of Marissa's butterfly that she had painted on the paper, but she definitely took Lindsey's lead and began painting on the canvas of her choice: herself.

I love the impish grin on her face. She decided to give herself a beard and moustache after covering her hands and arms up to her elbows.

This was followed by a bath in which the water became nearly the same color green as the infamous green paint incident of last summer.

What a great way to spend a summer evening!
