Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Dante is home sick with the flu, so we decided to fingerpaint. The beauty of fingerpainting is that it rarely goes anywhere near the paper you lay out. It should be called get-it-all-over-yourself painting or let's-paint-everything-BUT-the paper.

If you notice, we did a pretty good job of securing the area by laying down newspaper AND electrical tape. Needless to say, I just finished washing the floor while Daddy gave Mr. D a bath.

Looks like great fun. :)

My little man doesn't like to finger paint. He's too fastidious. :) But he loves to paint with his paintbrush. So Santa brought him some new paper and paint for xmas.

But he still manages to get the paint everywhere. I actually spread out one of Daddy's work dropcloths when the artist goes to work. :)

It's good to hear from you, A. I've missed you! :)

He's gotten so big! He barely looks like that baby from the Christmas card.

Hope he's all better now.
