Work of Genius

Well, at least I think so. Sam had a play date today and he created this gorgeous mixed media (crayon & watercolor) piece. It was so beautiful today (high 70's!) so we all sat outside and played and painted. It made me so happy. He wasn't into the whole crayon thing for a while but now he really loves it. And he has a real sense of when a piece is finished too. He just puts down the crayon and that's it. He's done. My little artist! I wish I could paint like that. I tend to never think my paintings are finished.

I took a walk downtown today and just felt so happy to be here. Everyone was out and there was this great, happy energy. People were playing guitars and eating outside. I know it's supposed to get cold again later this week but it sure has been nice to not wear a jacket and not have to turn on the electric mattress pad an hour before I get into bed. Can't wait for summer!

Sam is an ARTIST. Look at this! I have been trying to get annabelle to incorporate crayons into her 'work,' but she won't do it. It's just paint and glitter. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.
