Mixed Media Monday - Helping Hands - My son Cole and his latest watercolour and ink pieces....and my Mother's Day Cake from Cole....


Hi Everyone...Cole and I spent Mother's day enjoying special treats and quality time together....he painted with my special inks and watercolours and I ate some cake....The top piece was looking pretty scary at first but it is my favorite painting right now....the vivid colours and the darkness looks pretty neat...and then the metallic inks really add some depth...I just ask Cole what colours he wants and I squeeze them out into his pallet....and he goes wild....I really enjoy watching him create..........




He always looks so serious when he paints.....


and also very serious when there's cake to be eaten!!! lol Maybe Cole will be in some Exhibitions...wouldn't that be wonderful!!!
Happy Monday!!!


Hugs
Diana

What a feast to share with your blog friends! And what a wonderful illustration of a Mother's Day spent in sharing a love of painting and colour with Cole (not to mention the cake!!). Cole is definitely an artist-at-work. I hope we saw more of his work as the years go by.

Thanks for sharing. How great that Cole is allowed to spread his artistic wings, and have quality time with Mom as well!

He did a great job on these and so neatly done, too! I love the top one. Sounds like a very nice day.

Renee said...

Coles painting again is gorgeous.

I laugh at men with dreams or tarots. They believe in it much more than women and that is why they are always scared ot it.

Love Renee xoxo

That little guy just amazes me. There is a real artist inside that little body. Tell him I love both pictures he did & I send him a big hug. I know I sound like a broken record but he is just the most adorable child! Hugs, Diane
