Still Life 'Fall' Study
Justin is down for the count. To not go into too much detail, he has horrible diarrhea-- I just keep pumping him full of fluids, but that means we can't really leave the house. So-- we decided to have art class at home today.
While the kids were playing downstairs, I made a little still-life on the kitchen table. They were so excited to have a formal 'project' to do! Alex actually looked at the arrangement, picked out the squirrel as a subject, and did her own painting. Justin surprisingly intuitively picked out the same warm hues of orange and brown to complete his painting. I was not expecting either child to replicate the still-life, but use it as inspiration! Success!
