Forget Picasso, Watch Out for Violet!

I started painting with Violet as a way to let her be creative and have some fun indoors. She is quickly approaching her next open heart surgery and we have to limit contact with outsiders in a reasonable manner. So most of her activities are here at the house. Painting seemed like a great fit and boy did I hit the nail on the head with this one. She adores it. Every single day she asks to paint...which gets expensive lol.

The first few weeks was us basically finding out which mixtures and paints worked best for the types of paintings she was doing. We mix several things in with the paint and if you get the wrong consistency the painting will crack...and all that money just went down the drain 😉 We finally figured out the correct ratios for her paints and she hasn't slowed down since.

I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree in the artistic department 💞 Violet has such a passion for the arts and I love that she can show her paintings off to everyone.

Here are a few of her paintings. She actually has a website set up to sell her paintings and all profit from the paintings will be going toward expenses for her open heart surgery. More paintings will be added very soon, we are just waiting for the varnish to dry before I can photograph them for her....and lord knows with her painting every day that there will be a ton more here soon, so keep checking back on her website to see what else she creates!
