The children from my daughters school were in the parade dressed as artists, with a giant tube of yellow paint. She told me she’d showed them my website and although pleased she was proud of me, I felt a bit bad that I was too busy to go and help with the preparations. We put on our art overalls, my old lab coat heavy with dried acrylic, grabbed some easels. The kids had made palettes and paint brushes, I had to bring real ones! I was touched to find out that they were really inspired by my paintings and produced their own pieces based on what they’d seen. How lovely. We had a great time in the parade, lovely day, so many smiley people!! Going to do some art projects with the kids at school.in the future.
