a Matisse inspired painting

June 09 2016. 001 (5)

summer break is in full swing

which means lots of outdoors and indoors activities

during the school year, between the time that Lily gets home from school, we make dinner and then she goes to bed, there never seems to be enough time to get involved in big art projects like we used to

it had been a while since she had painted

funnily enough, on this particular day, she told me that she wanted to do a lot of painting this summer

so, off we went to pick up some new canvases and acrylic colors

once home, she looked through some of my art books and chose a Matisse painting as inspiration (this one)

it made my artist heart happy to see her painting again

and, i think she did a great job

happy ARTsy wednesday friends

it had been a while
