painting outdoors

The poster I recently framed was wrapped in a deliciously large piece of brown kraft paper. Right away I knew this would make a fabulous canvas for my 3-year-old daughter.

I clipped it to our fence with clothespins and let her have free reign using her brushes, her hands, and even her feet. I love watching her go for it with complete freedom. She doesn't feel constrained by the idea of making her art look like anything. Instead, she just enjoys the process. Us adults could stand a bit more freedom in our creative doings!
