Artist in the making...

Some kids are shy with paint.  Some are neat with it, and don't want any on their hands.  Some are just not interested.  Raina...  Raina would bathe in the paint if I let her.  We've taken a few art classes together this past year, and I can say without a doubt that she is *in love* with paint.  By the end of class, she has purple feet, red streaked hair, a green spotted belly, and is green from fingertips to elbows.  Yep, this kid was born to be an artist.
Last week I posted about a project we did with silly new brushes, that now hangs proudly in our kitchen.  Raina's room is decorated with her own original masterpieces, and her work hangs in the homes of many esteemed art critics (Gramma, Nana, Aunties... we've got all the big names hooked!)  Want to see some of her past works of art?

Markers and paintings and stamps, OH MY!  I always wanted a messy little crafty kid... and I was blessed to get one!
