ARTsy wednesday

Sebastian turned 1 last week.

Even though unfortunately we were not able to make it to his little birthday party, we wanted to give him a little something.

What do you give a 1 year old that has tons of toys, clothes, books….?

ART!

I decided to draw a portrait of Sebastian so he could hang it up in his room. (it was also an excuse for me to draw a bit 😉 )

The eye-hand coordination way of drawing has been a favorite of mine since art school (many, many, many ages ago).

I like the way it is unconventional and you can really have fun with it.

I drew his portrait, used color pencils to give it some color, lightly glued the drawing on a piece of construction paper, framed it and voila!

An ARTsy gift!

We have an artist!

Today through the South Beach Mommies Meet-up group we had ART in the Park at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.

It was SOOOOOO much fun!

Almost 20 moms with their little ones showed up and for most of us, it was our little one’s first time painting.

There were blankets all spread out on the grass, paper and washable paints being shared all underneath the shade of a wonderful big tree.

Everyone had an amazing time, mommies and babies.

It was so wonderful being able to have had such an artistic experience with Lily. When I was pregnant, I would daydream about painting with Lily, and today it became real!

I think it’s the beginning of something really good. 😉

(Sorry for the picture overload but, I think in this case a picture (make that many) is worth a thousand words)
