Heather wanted us to paint her some pictures to hang on her walls so the kids came with canvases and acrylics and brushes. The Knecht New Years Eve Paint-fest was the first and only time I have painted so my skill level is pretty low but I watched several videos online and a life time of the Joy of Painting with Bob Ross so I felt confident. And K and J came with pictures they wanted to do.
You should remember that I have Inclement Weather Paralysis and when it rains and is cold I can't bring myself to put on mascara or do my hair. So I look like a hobo. Or maybe like a consumptive artist. For the record, I did not sleep in those clothes. But that should actually surprise you.
K did the Omega Centari globular cluster (?!) and a snowflake, and J did the Walt and Mickey statue in front of the castle at Disneyland. And I did a tree. Because trees are easy and pretty. In between bouts of homework, Katie came out and touched up an abstract painting for her room.

|Don't you love how sometimes your blotter looks like art too.|
Later we cuddled under blankets and watched Star Wars and ate popcorn. Art Society is my favorite!!
