{Everyday Inspiration} hanging low….

Inspiration...

It seems as though the change of the season & schedules has brought the icky crud right along with it. Our whole family has been battling a bad cold over the last few weeks. We just keep exchanging symptoms & trying on new ones. Sayer & I are still feeling less than our energetic selves today & decided to take it easy. On the agenda (while Chris is at work) is a little painting, a possible puppet show, fire station, & some cuddling on the couch with our favorite books & magazines.  Hopefully we will be all energized and inspired by tomorrow. What do you have planned for the weekend?

{Everyday Inspiration} Saturday Painters…

It was too cold to play outside, not to mention, the snow wasn’t that  great snowball/snowman snow- it sort of just fell apart. Sayer & I ventured out today, but decided that we rather have hot cocoa & paint inside. I love the stage Sayer is in right now- although I’ve enjoyed all of them so far. He is just so cool & really fun to play with. I broke out my watercolors & painting materials (but was grateful I had Sayer use his own paints). We turned on the music & painted for quite awhile. Being that I’ve taught college level painting classes over the last 16 years, it was really refreshing to paint with him. His willingness to experiment, play & just enjoy painting- without a care in the world as to what the finished product looked like, is what I always tried to encourage in my students. It’s much trickier as an adult to be that way. Sayer was definitely an inspiration to watch & be around. I’m going to love sharing my studio with him over the years I can just tell. When his painting was done, he picked up a pair of Chris’ old glasses sitting on the bookshelf & started goofin’ around…. 

I really think that the pictures speak better than my words as to what I saw. Let’s just say, that I had a really good Saturday & the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Hope you’re having a nice weekend too.
