An Artist among Us



B. discovered his medium yesterday...he likes to work in watercolors. Over the past couple years I've tried getting him to paint every once in a while, to no avail. But yesterday he loved it.

He also said "paint" and, I think, "painting" several times. And when I tried to put things away as it started to rain, he said a very clear "NO!"

I'm hoping the paints really are truly non-toxic, because most of the time he had one brush in his mouth, and he drank part of a cup of the painting water.

My son also went through a watercolor phase after years of refusing art projects of any kind. I wonder if it's the soft colors, the soothing nature of the brush strokes? Who knows?

Anyway, an artist is born!! Hooray!!!
