Aspiring Artists

It was a beautiful day to be creative!

Willy and his friends, Sadie and Jessi, were feeling inspired, or rather, I was feeling inspired and they played along.  They weren’t too crazy about my idea at first but were great sports and we had a lot of fun.

Sadie did not really like the feel of paint between her toes the first time. But once she got to run across the fabric, the sheet, the lawn and the sidewalk – spreading color everywhere she went – she felt better.

Willy watched very closely to the whole process before it was his turn. He was not sure what was happening and not real sure he wanted a turn. Of course, the paint that we used was non-toxic child friendly paint. Some of the colors were even glow in the dark!

Jessica joined in the fun too! Although at first she was unsure, Jessi was the biggest contributor to the painted lawn. She had way more fun running through the paint and then adding bright colors to the grass.

Finally it was Willy’s turn! He did not mind the feeling of the paint between his toes. I think he kind of liked it! Willy, the creative genius that he is, was totally into the project.

Willy got his creative juices flowing, making sure the masterpiece flowed. You will remember, he painted his very own acrylic painting, so he has a real flare for art.

He put on the finishing touches all by himself!

And not only is the finished project a beautiful masterpiece, but it is practical as well.

Of course, after Willy and his friends ran around the yard, leaving pretty little splashes of color everywhere they went, they got much needed baths!

Sometimes, you just have to let loose; let your creative self explode! Just ask Willy.

Fun at the Fair

Giddy Up Doggy Country Fair

I don’t know about where you live, but here where I live September has always been when we have had our County Fair. I love going to the fair. I have even entered my art in the past. This year, due to a foot issue, I wasn’t able to attend. So, Willy and I decided to have our own fair!

Willy entered his Acrylic painting entitled, “Butterflies”, an abstract piece. Since he was the only entrant, I guess that means he won first place! He was so proud of his accomplishment!

What’s a fair without the games and other attractions? Willy decided to have a Kissing Booth. Doesn’t he look kissable?

He even got a customer! Jessica stopped by his booth, she loves kisses!

It wasn’t the same as going to the real thing, but it was still fun for Willy, and that is all that matters! Our County Fair always seems to usher in Fall, and the air has definitely been showing some signs that it won’t be long. What a glorious time of year!

Until next time, enjoy the cooler nights and the crisp mornings.  Fall is coming!
