As we were cleaning out the garage a little while ago I stumbled upon these paintings we had done for Joan as a mother’s day gift about four years ago. (Note how much younger the kids look.) Anyway, I had bought four of those little nine-inch pre-stretched, pre-primed canvasses and asked the kids to paint her pictures while I painted them painting. Mine is really more of a sketch than a painting. I just drew with a fine point Sharpie directly on the canvass and colored it with the craft acrylics we had (you can see the bottles of paint on the table). I know this isn’t recent, but when I saw them I thought it would be fun to post.
