Each day she'd walk up to her canvas,


Give a little smile,

And add something to it.

Yesterday it was a smudge of Cheetos from her hands...

Art doesn't mind if you're messy,

And every canvas needs a little flavor.

    1. Thank you. She was not quite 3 when I took this photo. She had a friend over and we stripped the girls down to their pull-ups, gave them finger paint and let them have fun.

  2. That's spectacular! Way to go, Peanut!

  3. Dear Stephanie, art I think comes out of openness! And being open to using whatever is handy--be it Cheerios or a fluff of cat fur is wonderful!!!! But that's children for you. They have the right idea. Peace.

  4. Awww, look at those baby curls!! That is a sweet photo and lovely little post! We don't have Cheetos over here so I'd unashamedly lick that smudge! hehehe

  5. That's one of the things I have always admired about you. Your ability to let Peanut express her own inner artist and to not be afraid of the clean up.
