With the onset of warmer weather, the outdoor easel was set up on our deck. Our deck is home to a sandbox, an easel, and some play kitchen toys. No deck furniture to speak of....that will come later. Here are some pictures of our artist-in-residence. Ann-Marie does some sort of art every day. She loves her easel and paints, but has taken to paper plates, using my tea boxes to make horse troughs, coloring, paper bag puppets, clay and lots of projects in process with recyclable materials. She has a very creative personality, so it is fun to provide her with some open-ended materials and see what she comes up with. She rarely asks for any ideas or for any help, so most of her artwork is hers alone. I love seeing this side of her come out!
