Apologies to all of my dedicated followers for my absence as of late! Settling into and simply enjoying our new home has been a bit consuming at times. My camera has been known to sit untouched for days at a time. And I've partially renewed the blessed hobby of napping with the boys. But we're still here, still rockin it how we do.
I wanted to let the boys create something big to hang over our couch, so I grabbed a huge canvas at Michael's with a 50% off coupon I had and some fall colored paints. We collected what we could find outside as painting tools -- pinecones, pine and maple branches, rocks, leaves, twigs, weeds. And then we made a giant mess. Ultimate boys that they are, their favorite part was smacking the pine branches onto the canvas. I barely took photos because I, too, was covered in paint -- but I did manage to snap a couple, my camera suffering only minor flesh wounds.
I love how the painting turned out after round one, but it's definitely a work in progress; we'll add more layers, making more messes and memories as we go. That's the fun part, after all.
