That Bone in your Body

I use to think I didn't have an artistic bone in my body and then I had a girl who has art in every bone of her body.  She is very talented, and she loves to draws. Put a pencil in my hand and I can't even write my own name!  Here's one of my favorites of her.

Then I took my husband to Canvas Sip and Paint in Kirkland, Washington. Its a place where you spend three hours learning how to paint.  This is what we did:

So I bought my daughter some good paint, great brushes and some canvases and we went to town and together we had a blast painting.  

Here are some of the art we have done:

I guess I do have an artistic bone in my body after all.  But most of all I love spending time with my daughter doing some really creative things.  I'll post more as I make them.
