creative minds

Addelyn got an easal for Christmas and she LOVES it. It has a marker board, a chalk board, and a place to pull down paper and paint. She loves the painting, which takes a little more prep and of course, I need to watch her closely through the process. I love watching her creativity. Yesterday she painted a picture of my pregnant belly, a dog, the sun, and six birds!

Another favorite about the easal is watching Mark paint with her. Mark is what I'd call a "closet artist." He has so much talent and creativity but often doesn't allow himself the time or space to let it out. I love seeing him on the ground, enjoying his painting as much as his daughter!
