Mother & Son Painting


Theo with his mother and his mother’s mother.

For Mother’s Day this year, Theo and I went to a painting class at The Paint Mixer. It was a Parent/Child class where you each got a separate canvas to paint. The original picture that we were supposed to learn to paint looked like this:


We decided to do something different, and each painted one half of the picture on our two canvases. Then we would have a larger painting when they were put together. Of course I painted the mama giraffe and Theo painted the baby giraffe.


We had a great time! When we were both done, we put our paintings together and voila – a masterpiece! It was a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day together and explore our creative and artistic sides. We can’t wait to go back to another class together again!
