Budding Artist

Sally Rose loves to create art. She loves coloring with crayons, sidewalk chalk and especially markers. These days, though, she's found a new medium to love. Paint! She gets SO excited to paint, either with brushes or hands. We got this easel at IKEA a while back for something like $10. A very good investment. She's such a sweetie and I hope she continues this passion.

This was her first experience with brushes- she wouldn't look at me because she was so into it.

This is Sally's look of concentration. I love her lip.


Sally gave this work to Daddy for Father's Day


Finger painting is so fun!

Check out her eyelashes in this one. She could paint with them.

That looks like so much fun! I want to get one! $10 bucks! That is a no brainer! She is a beautiful little painter, and she really does nice work!

P.S. I love your new blog background. You are getting fancy. I swear, everyone can figure out the fancy stuff except me! What is wrong with me? Ugh!

I love that Sally is an aspiring artist, she and I can try to paint together. I totally love the flash back T-shirt to Ouelessebougu! Awesome that you still have it.

Sally is such a cutie patootie. It's so much fun to see these little ones personalities and interests blossoming. I wouldn't be surprised if she's the next picasso. She inherited some good, smart, creative genes. Oh, and ditto on the background. Super cute.

Emily said...

awesome! She can do anything now that she's mastered painting!
