New Painting {Memories 3}

This was one of the paintings finished last week. When my GYPO (Get Your Paint On) class assignment was to do something out of your ordinary and that is inspired from another artist, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to work with my daughter! Why would it be fitting for the class assignment? Well we were given tips on staying loose, to do something we haven't tried before and one of the artists who inspires me is Clara Fialho. Her art is beautiful, loose and just so fun. So how better to get me from my normal detailed work than having my girl work right along side me!

She was a pretty serious painter! You could definitely tell she was enjoying every minute of it though. She kept telling me "I love painting with you mommy!" Awwwe. I really had no idea if anything good was going to turn out, but I didn't care. I've wanted to do a painting with K for a while now and this was just the perfect opportunity.

After this first stage I took it for a little while, then I got to a point where I didn't know what else to do to it but knew it wasn't finished so I let her back at it...

and now a look at the final piece...
Titled "Memories 3" for her just turning 3 and such a wonderful memory created. A few clusters of 3 were worked into the painting to remind me of her age. :)

Now I'm way behind on this weeks assignment and it's going to take me longer... not sure if I'm going to get it done in time, might just have to show it in progress. But I'm loving the course!!!
Happy Weekend!

What a fun assignment! She is so cute... and looks like she is having a blast! It turned out beautifully. And I love the name. What color do you use for the yellow/gold?... I love it!

Lovely painting. It is so refreshing. How nice that you share the process with your daughter! I am a grandma and I am looking forward for doing something with my grandchildren ( a 2 y/o boy and a 6 months baby girl) as soon as they grow up a little. So glad I found you through Jennifer's blog and from a comment in my blog from another grandma that paints! Keep Enjoying the artful life and your adorable baby girl!
