Here is the finished painting. I used acrylic paint and it seems like it will hold up well. Many of my students asked "Why are you painting an apron?" I'm not sure why I did...but I like it! Next project is to paint a small table in the art room that needs some TLC.

Another picture from my mother-in-law. I love this picture. It is so me. Colorful and artistic mixed with cowboy. One of my favorites. Perfect in this room.
Yes, another gift from great-aunt and uncle. This guy has not seen the light of day for darn near quarter of a century as he has been stuffed in storage in my parents basement. He must be so excited to be in the art room. All of the hustle and bustle of kids being creative. I am sure he is a little overwhelmed.
My favorite addition so far. Not exactly art, but very inspiring.

I have done water colors with Cal, even when he was very small.
He enjoyed it, but I have to say he REALLY enjoyed this painting.
I think he liked the texture of the acrylic paint and the freedom.
(don't we all?)
It was sooooo much fun to watch him concentrate.
This project really captured his attention.
Cal has a couple more layers left on his painting.
When he finishes it I will reveal his finished masterpiece!
Needless to say, mom did not get much done. She was having too much fun watching the "helper" and snapping pictures of him. Oh well, I somehow managed to be ready on the first day. I always do. ;)
