We've got one small empty corner in our living room--behind the butterfly chair and in front of the rack that holds all the glasses, it's where we put the Christmas tree when that time of year rolls around. And it turns out one of the main purposes this corner serves--though we could never have anticipated this when we were setting the space up a year or so ago--is as a place to put paintings to dry. Sometimes we like to all three sit at the dining table and paint (or sometimes Mabel and her grandpa paint--as mots beautifully depicted here), and then we lay out all our paintings on the floor, each in our various different styles, to sit quietly out of the way while the paint dries. I usually like to take their picture at this point. And this one time, Mabel sneaked into the frame.
