It didn't take them long to ask to paint, and they wanted to try painting by video. So I pulled up "Kawaii Elephant with Rainbow Bubbles", by The Art Sherpa on
YouTube. It is one that she did for kids. I had them use craft acrylic paint, so they would not have to mix the pastel colors.
As you can see there is my coffee cup in the lower left hand corner, and Megan's water glass there too. They started our morning, but we quickly changed water..........
I was out of canvas board and small canvas', but I did have a loose leaf canvas pad. I did tape the pages to a cardboard so it wouldn't move around as they painted. They were surprised that it took them over an hour to paint their pictures.........even though we fast forward through all the talking....it was filmed live.
My proud artists
After cleaning up and having some lunch we went to the movies, we went to see an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Even I was laughing.....cute movie.
It was such a gorgeous day, and the almond trees are really starting to break out in bloom. We decided to grab our drinks, a couple hats and go out and take some pictures. Even after over 40 years of living here I never tire of seeing the almonds in bloom. Of course the prettiest flowers out there were Hannah and Megan......*grin* They also found the umbrella, in the back of the car and wanted to use it too...................
Lots of honey bees.......the orchards are full of stacked hives and I forgot to get a photo of them.....but I did get a couple of bees.......
Well, that's my T-Day post for this week. Seems I've gotten into the habit of running late for the Tea Party. I didn't get my photos onto the PC until late, then had to choose which ones........out of 70 or so that I took.......to share.........then a little re-sizing and collaging.....then getting them uploaded to Blogger. By the time I had accomplished all that it was very late, and I just decided that if I didn't get to bed, I wasn't going to get to bed.....LOL So I'm up early, still on my first cup of coffee, banging away on this post. Am I the only one that takes forever to get a post written??
Time to link up with the T-day Gang and see what in their cups and containers this week, have my second cup of coffee loaded and ready to go. Join me?
