Clare started taking a watercolor class in March, and after her lessons I make her teach me what she's learning. When Sarah's birthday approached, we came up with the idea of each painting her a small watercolor. Sarah likes birds, and trees, so we centered our works of art around those themes.
Here are all three paintings, along with the floppy sun hat we also gave Sarah.
|Theresa opted for a simple bird and branch silhouette on a sponged yellow background.|
|Clare's has a tree done in watercolor pencil in front of a moody, dramatic background. She wished, afterward, that she hadn't put the bird in.|
|I (Michele) copied a really cool picture I found on the internet with a variety of multicolored birds in the branches.|
|And of course, we painted Philip.|
