Bird Nest With Three Blue Eggs

"Let's paint with pink!" she said as we got started, and I'm so glad she did.

I love it when my niece texts to ask if we can paint together.  Painting is brand new to her, and it's fun to watch her work through the frustrations then reach success.   

I think that painting together lends itself to relationship building.  Because we're each facing our canvas rather than each other and because our eyes and hands are occupied, it's a good set up for real conversation.  

She begins her first year of teaching soon... lucky students!

    I love the colors in the background as well! What a treat to be painting with your niece... A perfect way to bond... Enjoy the rest of the evening...

    1. Oh, Hilda, you should try one. You just kind of start in the middle and work your way out... kind of like a bird would! ha ha

  4. Oh, to have you near to teach me just a little of what you know. Not that it would do any good, but...
