I loved this art project. It was inspired by a famous French painter named
Jean Baptiste Simeon Chardin And his "Soap Bubbles" Painting. Instead of practicing a technique related to the artist, we used the painting itself to create these pieces. What we loved:
The bright colors
The fun medium
The lack of control
Art takes on new life when it just happensvs being controlled.
This was such a big hit and the boys absolutely adored the results. We'll be revisiting this again during warmer months.
Wow! 4 was a BIG deal to this little boy.
Weston is tiny guy packed with ginormous emotions. He's ridiculously sweet, creative, talented, a master snuggler, and funny as heck.
Eggs and bacon (which is basically what he has every morning)
Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting
What a good daddy!

Just one of the big boys
We're trying to implement a once-a-month homeschool art class led by myself. This was our first attempt. A little art history, an introduction to a new technique and medium and a LOT of teenage-girl silliness:)
I think it went pretty well and hopefully the girls took away new knowledge about art.
They all turned out beautifully!
Lisa was craving some Vietnamese and we were both craving some girl-time so we made last minute plans to meet up in Bayview.
We found a fun restaurant and noshed on tasty cuisine.
I'd never tried Vietnamese but I quickly fell in love. In fact, it was so good that Mark and I went back for a date two days later.
I love spending time with this lady! 17 years of friendship and counting!
