My daughter has a love of painting. She sometimes paints pictures but she paints a lot of abstract pieces. I found a really good deal on canvas and some acrylic paints and she’s having a blast letting her creativity flow.
To be honest, her preferred medium is watercolor paints, and I continue to buy them for her, but she is learning to use a variety of paints and seeing how they work with her creations.
Sometimes her paintings are “unique” but some I just fall in love with immediately. I have never been a big art person, but my appreciation for what someone can create is growing. We have a small collection of her artwork lining various walls and doorways in our home. She’s even had an offer to buy one of her pieces.
I am incredibly proud of my lil miss. She isn’t afraid to show people her work. She is having fun but also learning a variety of skills. Sometimes, she will paint just to paint. Other times, I’ll assign something for school. Regardless of the reason she paints, I truly hope she continues to develop her art; wherever it may lead her.
