kai and i decided to introduce the youngin's to jackson pollock over the weekend. o and bella couldn't have been happier. kai had been introduced to his work in preschool and, ever since then, he dabbles a bit whenever he is painting. sometimes a good thing, sometimes not so much. normally i would have waited until the weather could allow us to take this outside, but seeing as this winter is not letting up, i spread out an old table cloth and we tried to keep things under control::
bella waited more patiently than i could have imagined, being third in line. when she finally dipped in a brush, she amazed the lot of us by producing a perfect little purple balloon with her first slosh. the boys were flabbergasted and she became the star of the jackson pollock experiment::
this art project is also part of a larger idea that kai cooked up on his own. one which i immediately endorsed and am thrilled to help him realize. more on that to come!
