Sunday afternoon. Sitting in the living room. I’m bored. M runs through a list of many things we could do, all of which I shoot down. (I don’t feel like doing thaaaat!) Until he suggests watercolors. Hmm…that sounds fun, actually!
So I dig around and find some of my (cheap) brushes.
We head over to the craft store to buy (cheap) watercolors and watercolor paper.
Masterpieces are made. Above is M’s first creation of the night: New Mexico.
And his second– er– masterpiece: Our house. (The red, white and blue blob in the upper left corner is supposed to be me. I’m watering my garden. Tucker the dog also makes an appearance. He’s the black blob with ears and a tail.) Yes folks, this is the work of an adult.
And mine: After diddling around and not being able to come up with any ideas, I conjured up a place that would make me feel peaceful. I’d love to be perched under that tree with a book and an apple.
