Paint Party Friday.....my favorite way to spend the weekend.....











Hi Everyone....I just had to share something sweet I do with our son now...he brings home new books each week from the library and we read and enjoy the books then we take some time to work on watercolours about characters from the book....I am so proud of his work.....he has so much fun painting and I love to see the passion in his eyes when we create together....

We just worked on these paintings from the book "stuck in the mud"
This week we will be working on a piece from the book...." the dog who cried wolf" This is so much fun....

It has been a very hectic week filled with all kinds of technical glitches and finally I am back in full swing....catching up on some work and soon some relaxation for the Easter weekend....

I am sharing these paintings with all of my friends at Paint Party Friday....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating Everyone!!!

This is fabulous! Cole definitely looks like he is taking after his mum in the artistic talent stakes and what a lovely way for you to spend time together! Happy Easter.

I used to do that with my daughter and it was just soooo special... those sweet memories see me through the joy that is the teenage years... please inform Cole that he is a magic painter and I am sooo impressed with his work... and that he stole the show this week... quite an achievement with such an uber-talented Mum......hope you have a happy and safe Easter...xx
