Very little blog posting has been going on around here for the last week. I was either preparing for, or enjoying, the visits of our sons and their families over the Thanksgiving holiday. When I knew Aubrey would be here, she and I planned on a painting session and a beading session to further explore our creativity together. I drew simple (coloring book style) turkeys onto watercolor paper) and set out the paints to let her do whatever with. As you can see, her interpretation of a turkey was one of a black one.
I asked her what happened to the turkeys face and wattle, she replied "they are under the paint"! I guess that says it all when it comes to artistic license. In critiquing our work, Aubrey's treatment of the edgers of the feathers does make for more realistic feathers!
Aubrey's best friend during this visit was Destiny, our step-granddaughter. She took a more mature, careful approach to her turkey and I realize now that I did not get a photo of hers, but it was magnificent! Aubrey's Mama, Christine, joined us for awhile and it was an excellent session.
