"every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures"    -Henry Ward Beecher our three year old has fallen in love with painting.  every morning while her big brother and sister do their school work she paints.   i love to watch her as she colors her canvas.  she concentrates, she sings, and she even dances as she makes her art.   it is serious work to her and she always asks me if her work  looks pretty.  some mornings she does many pictures, while other days just one is enough.   i was happy to capture her in her element yesterday morning.  this is her at three--an artist painting what is inside of her soul.   i cherish these moments with all of my heart.
