Art is Awesome!!

Today, Livie, Andrew, and I went to The Dreaming Bear's open art studio (every Saturday from 10 AM - 4 PM). We went a little over a month ago (check out A Day in the Life of an Artist), and had a blast.

Because it had been a while since we've been there and seeing how Mother Nature was threatening to give us rain, we decided to go again today. This time, *I* decided to do some artwork, too. Daddy just observed, giving Livie a hand every so often.

Anyway, Livie decorated THREE things today!

She painted a horse, using Cotton as inspiration and making her horse a Palomino named Goldy.

Didn't she do a great job with this?! She picked the right paint color for that Palomino coat, and just the right color for the mane and tail.

Here's Cotton (registered name: Wild Stride), who was Livie's inspiration.

Here's Livie's flying heart!

And here's Livie's dinosaur! (She had adult assistance with the hot glue gun and the eyes.)

By the way, her stuff is sitting on paper plates as we wait for the paint to dry completely. It still had a couple slightly goopy spots when we left the studio.

I decorated a picture frame with turquoise paint and some "jewels." I'm planning on putting a New Mexico photo in it. I'm going to put it on my desk and use it as inspiration for writing. 
 (It started off as a plain wood frame.)

It was so much fun working in the art studio, getting paint all over our hands, and doing something creative. Livie and I are all wound up now, after using our little gray cells and making cool things.

I can't wait 'til we get the chance to go back.

Livie is quite the little artist.

And your frame is just the right color (turquoise) to show off one of your pretty photos. :)

Holy smokes, she has mad painting skills! No way could Pierce pull that off!
