With Her First Watercolors
Lately Mabel has gotten really into painting.We cover the dining table with newspapers and put her in an old tee-shirt and she goes to town, producing a painting about every three minutes for as long as we'll leave her to it. Up till now we've been using tempera paints, but the other day we decided to try out the new watercolors her grandmother gave her for Christmas. She loved them, and the paintings are awesome. Perhaps I'll show them here some other time, since they sure as heck don't show up at all in the above polaroid. Nevertheless I do think you get some sense of her feeling pleased as punch with herself and her bountiful art accomplishments.
