Last night’s painting session felt messy, crazy and crowded. And I was crabby. But it ended well, or will, if I get the art room cleaned up. Merry pulled off a lovely self portrait. Holly painted three very different, very colorful abstracts. She says the first one is a “very, very big, very purple people”. And I painted artichokes.

Meredith and I are entering these into the DPW Self Portrait and Paint a Vegetable Challenges.

    I think it is fantastic that you and your children do this. And I can’t wait to see Meredith’s self portrait on DPW. 🙂 Your artichokes look perfect!

    Your artichokes are a success, and your children paintings wonderful!

    Merry, I think your Self Portrait could stand up to any, anywhere. My daughter Mary Ellen was also a good artist at age 8. She painted another painting while she was in college to give to a friend. That is the last time she’s painted – a real waste because she has talent. Don’t ever quit painting Merry – you are on the way to a fine career and it would be too sad to lose another fine talent!
    Your friend, Beckie
