budding artists

IMG_8794
lately we have been painting.  it started with water colors a few weeks ago and then the girls got some paints from their grandma in the mail and painting has not been the same since.

velzy is really into it.  she asks to paint at least 10 times a day.  and she loves to hang her art up in her room.  ivy doesn't really get the whole paint on paper part yet.  but, we encourage all forms of artistic expression.

and then off to the pool to wash off.

why is always more fun to paint on yourself than paper...Jt used to paint himself any chance he got... he wanted to be Darth mal.

Your girls are so cute, and i really love how you embrace their crazy antics, wish i were better about that.

i love the face-painting. and my kids LOVE to watercolor paint, too. it's fun to see them be so proud of the pictures they make. and faith will be in kindergarten - and i have a hard time thinking that i am already the mother of a kindergartener.

Velzy has a real gift. I could actually tell what she painted. As for the body art thing- YOU ARE AN AWESOME MOM! I need to be a little more fun.

You have to be the most fun mom EVER. Every kid in the world wants to paint their face and only like .01% are allowed to do it. The other 99.9% are totally busted after they do it :) Can I be like you when I grow up?

Ivy is my favorite!! I love how she just beats to her own drum!!! And I love velzy's painting!!!!! Whenever I give Bryile more than one color to paint with she makes brown... on purpose... as if Brown is the coolest thing in the world!! So I'm impressed by velzy's amazingly vibrant colors on her masterpiece!

Super-dee-duper cute. Love those girlies. Yes, still planning on heading down to LA! We WILL have to meet up! I just saw the Barney's and they said they live close and the Feller's too, so we will all have to have a BYUH reunion! Boo-yah!

Keli'i and Megan said...

Painting is hot in our house too. Makena is somewhere in between. She likes painting on those big coloring pages, but also enjoys slapping some on her hands and feet. It must feel good.
