Where Does The Time Go?

It flies, and so many things stack up like a pile of paintings I put aside to gesso some day. I rescued this one for a second look. I didn't remember it and then I saw I was looking at it upside down. It has possibilities I think.....  Is it a keeper or not?

Olivia and Hudson
The other part of the story is my extended family has been traveling a lot and I have picked up some of the slack in child care for the Grands.  Setting up a table with watercolors, paper, and nice paint brushes is a treat for all of us.  I can still learn a thing or two about painting from them..... Amazing!


  1. love that painting--though I am not sure what I would do if I were you..leave it be? add more over the top? I don't know--the shapes and colors are super interesting. Some of it looks like Arabic writing.
    Little people are outstanding artists...and they are lucky to have you giving them lots of opportunities to express themselves!

  2. If this were mine, I'd ruin it because my first thought was it's done as is - interesting shapes and colors and I "see" a landscape there already without you adding another brush stroke. Of course, I'd have to fiddle with it!

  3. I'm biased, but I love the second picture. It makes me so happy to see the kids painting with you.

  4. Hey Celeste and Rhonda,thanks. I think it's the upper right corner that has to go..... Maybe Myrna's trick with bleach!

    As the kids get older, the painting sessions get longer. We had a great time.
