I had to brag about my creative kid a little today. Here is his last painting and I’m starting to feel a little threatened. Ha ha, just kidding but wow. I’m even impressed. I’m not totally sure he is doing this on purpose because if I ask him which is his favorite color to make, he answers with the color mud. Oh well. He is having fun and I love it that he interested in expressing himself.
I really shouldn’t be surprised though, because being around a preschooler all the time I’ve learned first hand at how super creative they are. No toys around? No problem… he’ll play with what ever is there like a straw or a rock and makes up elaborate stories of their perils along with names and friends. It’s hilarious and also very thought provoking. Even as I consider myself a creative person… I feel I have lost a lot of that natural wonder and exploring instinct that he now possesses. I listen intently as he plays and I feel honored when he wants me to join in his creative play. I’m taking notes. I’m determined to get back some of that early childlike wonderment back with him leading the way.

Artist, dreamer, gardener and nature nut. I love iced tea, music, scary ghost movies, growing all kinds of plants especially tomatoes and houseplants and enjoying my life in the country with my husband, son and our 3 cats and my ever faithful studio dog, Zoey.
I spend my summers weeding in the gardens and the fall and winter doing art shows and painting in my studio. Spring is a busy gardening time for me as well.
I blog about my life, gardens and paintings I'm working on. I also have my work for sale on my site.
Find me in my art studio attached to my greenhouse painting all the beauty that surrounds me.
