water, color, paint...

"water, color, paint..."  was what dom was chanting as he used watercolors for the first time...  he really enjoys expressing himself creatively - and my mister and i really enjoy every minute of it!

dom has been asking us if he could paint, so i headed over to the nearest dollar store and picked up a "dick and jane" (used to read the books back in kindergarten) coloring book with watercolor paints, and a brush!


this is how it went...






the best part was this:

"a family portrait" by dom (annotation by me - as described by the artist)

have a great day!
xo, carla
