The budding artists hard at work:
Molly picked out the baby elephant
coercion suggestions from me.
This is a multi-step process requiring patience and endurance.
Patience and endurance with a three-year-old...
I told you, we left our common sense at the door.
However, the girls did nothing but impress us all day long.
So much so in fact, that we painted our own pieces
while the girls painted theirs.
Leave it to me to always make a short story long,
here is the local celebrity part mentioned above.
While the girls were hard at work, a photographer
from the local paper came in and took the girls' picture.
And a shot of the artist with her work:
And another gratuitous cute shot of exactly the same thing.
Despite the fact that Molly is wearing the exact same outfit
as when she was painting...
It took a week from the time she painted the project
until it was fired and ready for pick-up.
Guess I need to get a little more creative in the way I dress her.
God knows, the girl has plenty of clothes in her closet!
Oh, and here's my little work of art.
