Thought I would post today as I'll be keeping Penny tomorrow until Wednesday.  Although, I can't really paint, paint when she's here (or post) I did work on the texture for a larger painting the last time she was here and she worked by my side doing some chalk and pencil work on it.  This girl absolutely LOVES to spend time in the studio!  There are many things that I lock up and put up when I know she's coming, but still lots to get into it.  I don't mind as I believe this encourages her to be involved in the art making process.  She now has her own box of markers, paints, pencils, canvas etc.....pretty much her studio!  If you have young children at home I encourage you to provide them with materials they can use to stretch their imaginations and nurture their creativity.  Here is Penny busy arranging and organizing buttons on a canvas while I was working.  Perhaps the buttons where an inspiration for this painting!  She is so full of life and fun to be with!!
