Messy fun!

I have wanted a new picture in the living room for a long time. I remembered I had a old canvas and was wondering what I could do with it when i remembered we have a budding artist living in this house. Jack loves to color with his crayons and markers so I thought it would be fun to let jack create some art.We went to the craft store and bought some tempera paint and some brushes. By the time we got home jack was ready for a nap so I prepped the canvas by painting over the whole thing in red. Unfortunately It did not cover up the print on it but that is ok.

 After the paint was dry, we but an old shirt on him, poured some paint into cups and let him go to town.

 He had so much fun he made another picture.

  1. I feel honored that I was able to watch the art as it was created. What a cutie patootie! I love the art, but mostly I love the artist! Ma

  2. This is awesome! He did such a great job. I have wanted to do this with Mary but we don't have anywhere outside where she can paint.

  3. Fantastic! I have art done by an elephant, and art done by a sea lion, both of which pale in comparison to the art of JUST JACK!
