Artisic Inspiration!

We decided to have a painting day! Our friends The Mann's posted beautiful masterpieces that their boys painted. She mentioned they are going to hang them in their play room. I thought that was a fabulous idea and told Natalie that I was going to copy them! I've been trying to think of ways to decorate our playroom and this is the best idea I have heard of yet! I picked up the canvas' today and they were so excited to get started! They had a blast and I can't wait to hang up their new masterpieces! Harrison painted a picture about Lady and the Tramp, of course, and Jackson just painted whatever the heck he wanted! :) It was loads of fun and I can't wait to do it again!

The finished product! I LOVE them! :)

Didn't you love Natalie's idea? I thought it was great! The boys' pictures look great - I love them! I think it's hilarious that you made them paint in the garage - and even funnier that Jackson was stripped down, but wearing a bib!! Too cute!

I thought the same thing - what a fun idea! Looks like the boys had a blast & I love the stripped down & painting thing Jackson has going on!! (I think Anderson would do the same thing!)

Very cool - I was just telling my friend the other day that I was going to go to Michaels and get 2 canvases for Erin to make pics for the playroom. The boys masterpieces are beautiful!

The paintings are awesome. I can't wait to see them. That picture of Jackson in his undies and smock is hillarious :)
I know you will treasure the paintings and the memories of making them for years to come!

Oh I can't wait to see the boys masterpieces. These pixs are great and I'm loving Jackson's outfit as he paints. Hey that's one way to make sure he doesn't get paint from head to toe. :)
Love ya
