3 Generation Painting

                                                                                 
I decided I wanted a 3 generation painting with my Mother and my Daughter....so I got them to work on a canvas with me.

They both looked at me and said..."I can't paint" I laughed and said "Yes you can!" When I explained to them that we were NOT going to make an object...we were just going to make marks and splotches...they both relaxed and jumped in to try :0)
So, we each picked 3 colors and played...then we switched places.




This is were we stopped mark making and started to block out a subject.

My Mom loves butterflies..so I drew a simple butterfly and we blocked out the outsides so all the cool marks we made would pop out on the wings.
and here we are with the finished canvas....3 generations.


This is going to be a treasured memory with my family.

Thanks for stopping by :0)

This is great! You and your family did a fantastic job with the communal family painting. BTW, your daughter keeps growing up and getting more beautiful every time I see a picture of her on your blog or IG or FB. Happy Mothers Day!
