...and a shot of the regal Shepherd... always scanning the horizon for a potential problem. She's calmed down MUCH more since being done with her first heat cycle.
We found a cluster of blossoms to snip in order to draw in more detail once we arrived back in the classroom. I was expecting Alex to use the color and draw one of her "stock" flower images (you know-- the daisy-type puffy thing with a circle for the middle). Instead, she surprised me by really LOOKING at the petals and drawing what she saw. I mean- I did tell her that was what art was all about-- looking at what was in front of you, not what you thought a tree looked like-- but I didn't expect the lesson to stick that quickly.
