Childlike....this painting looked totally different in it's beginning stages as it was begun by my 2 almost 3 grand-daughter. If you can imagine it, she had chosen three colors to paint with, pink, yellow and black.  Mostly black is what we ended up with...yes, I say we as I played along with her desire to paint on one of my good canvases. I knew that I could always paint over it....and besides isn't the first stroke the why not let her make it!

As I played along side her, I watched and listened to her and was inspired  to paint once again like a child. No thought, no doubts, her arms swinging and paint splashing believing that she was an artist.

A few days later, I used what we had painted together as the foundation, the beginning of a new painting that just continued to grow layer upon layer with lots of color, movement and that childlike inspiration.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.  Psalm 8: 1-2
