His first painting

I really haven't been able to do much of anything aside from work and take care of the family. Very little "me/free" time has become standard. However, today I decided to find a way to paint and not draw the ire of my preschooler. Today I introduced him to painting. Using Basic Acrylics, a 16x20 canvas' and 2 bushes I let him go to town. I sat next to him with my own smaller canvas to try and grab his attention.

Keeping the attention of a 3 year old is really a futile task. He would paint for a little bit, run away to something else, come back and do the whole thing over again. I tried to paint on his canvas as well so we could paint together. This worked for a little bit. The work around the edges is mine, he is responsible for the middle. I think for a first attempt it's not too bad. I've displayed it here along with my own. Just to prove that I did actually paint today. Let's hope this is a start of a trend.
