Leave it to a Child

…to come up with new ways of doing things.  That’s one of the cool things about making art – the possibilities for solving problems are endless.  It should not have surprised me when my 2 1/2 year old decided that she could get BETTER results from painting with watercolors if she first poured the entire bowl of water onto the paper.  She dabbed colors into the pool with her brush and then watched the swirls of color move throughout the puddle. Totally fascinated her and reminded me to keep an open mind…and a roll of paper towels.
