5 x 7 oil on panel
buy this in my etsy shop!

my youngest son came up to me as I was painting the other other day and said:

"mom, I want to paint with you...
you don't have to teach me, I just want to paint next to you."

I looked at him and smiled and said:

"I'm using oils."

"it's ok. I want to paint." he said.

so with big smiles we sat side by side 
and we painted.....

5 x 5 oil on panel - mason age 9

his reminds me of the giving tree.

...and the mother was happy.  :)

I love the contrast in the thistle, it appears illuminated against the black! I really like the simplicity of the tree. Nice work!!

Fabulous thistle painting, Tracie. It just jumps to life from that black background. I love Mason's tree too! What a great job and good to see the genetic trait continues!

I know that feeling. I have experienced it with my children... and it is good! So are your paintings :)
