Picasso and his muse

We decided to break out our paints yesterday and paint some pictures outside. Of course Sampson had to come be depressed next to us, so to cheer him up Brody painted his nails. What a nice guy!

Brody is very particular when it comes to his drawings. If I try to color on the same paper or add onto his pictures he gets sooo mad and will throw the paper or scribble really hard all over it and mess it up! he is such a brad, I mean brat;) This week he started to draw 'big trucks". One night it was zig-zags and a circle and the next day he added tires to the zig-zag circle, and now he is adding a circle inside the truck whick I think is the window! who knows. I PROMISE I DIDN'T HELP HIM DRAW THESE PICTURES. My sister and I were laughing bc a couple months ago there was this really young girl who was doing these amazing oil paintings, and she was on all these morning and talk shows. Come to find out her dad was 'coaching' her on the pictures. cheater! We were joking that it would be Brad and I in a few years...Big Truck IBig Truck II
Brody dumped out all of his markers and put his bin over his head. I guess it was his thinking cap for his next piece of art!

RANDOM PICTURE: we went to HancockFabrics one evening and I guess Brody was ready for bed bc he found some fleece fabric and layed down and started singing his night night songs ;)

Artisian Blood......

My family has alot of artistic talents, I am good at copying stuff if that counts, but my mom, older brother and sister are very very talented at drawing, painting, sewing, etc...etc.... I think Brody has that gene bc he LOVES to color and draw. One day he drew for like 2 hours straight. He loves for Brad and I to draw trucks and fish. About two weeks ago I noticed he started drawing circles and then they became circles with tails. I asked him to draw me some fish and this is what he did.... the red fish is one I drew.

My mom painted this picture of Brody and I and even though she kept reminding me that it was a painting and not a photograph I still think its awesome!
