Lime 02

This night went better with my daughter. We had time and she was able to take some instruction from me. She was trying too hard to make the lime realistic. When I told her to loosen up and have fun, she said "Art can be fun?" I said sure, experiment, throw some paint around, enjoy. She said her art teacher at school wouldn't let them do that. Everything was very regimented and had to be realistic.

Now she is enjoying herself and flexing the old brain muscles. She was using watercolor pencils. Then she started stamping some acrylics. Then making thumb prints. She didn't want me to post her piece, so I won't. But here is mine.
