Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
This week we started with watercolor resist painting and the artist Claude Monet. I had helped the girls make paintings like this months ago so we had tested everything and had examples. Watercolor resist is ALWAYS a hit with kids and we added dimension with tissue paper lilly pads. It was one of my very favorite processes to do with art group. We read the book Harold And The Purple Crayon and talking about being free to draw and create anything you want and we looked at some of Monet's work and talked about him as an artist and then turned the kids loose to work.
This year Lovely L's little twinnies are coming to art group. It makes me happy to have babies in the group again. I can't believe I have been doing art group for so long and that my kids were so tiny the first few years. It is fun to have tiny people back in the mix.
