While I was helping my daughter with her Father’s Day paintings a few days ago, I took this photo of one of my favorite paintings I did some time ago. My Mom proudly displays it in her home. I used a simple palette and I just love the quick impression the flowers left on me with their vibrant colors. Just wanted to share an original painting. I hope you enjoy.

I found this on Groupon Goods and it’s finally arrived. It’s a really cute game you can play with your kids to teach them about art while having fun. It is produced by Birdcage Press. They have really great categories of games and books for kids (not just art). I’ll definitely be checking out what other products they offer.

So to celebrate Father’s Day instead of buying the usual cards and gifts, I asked my 5 year-old daughter if she wanted to create paintings for her Dad and her Grandfathers. She was more than delighted. I needed to stock up on paint, so a quick trip to Michael’s and we were set. You have to love their online 50% off coupons. You can’t beat that. I found this great set at one heck of a great deal (about $25.00 with the coupon). We needed a new table top easel and some fresh acrylic paints so it was perfect.
So I was chatting with my Mom today and she shared with me that she had seen a really cute commercial featuring a man who receives a painting easel as a gift from his wife. He goes on a spree of painting through all different environments while his wife is supporting him along the way… funny thing is she could not remember what the commercial was actually for, but she did remember his paintings! Now for how successful the marketing campaign is, since she couldn’t remember what it was for, I’ll leave that for them to decide. Take a look
