Something NEW for me

When I do something creative, I have a plan.  Well, at least, a good idea what I’m going to do.  For Christmas I gave my granddaughter a set of acrylic paints.  Of course, she wanted to try them out immediately — with Grammie.  To my studio — the little yard sale child’s table — we go.  I grabbed a little 5 x 5 canvas that I had previously prepped with some left over aqua paint.  Didn’t want to use up her new canvases.  As she was putting paints on her palette to use, I used them too.  No color choice for me, just what she was using.  No idea.  No theme.  No plan.  Just putting paint on the canvas and totally enjoying being with her.  Today, I added some words.
We were having so much fun that soon I lost my spot at the table to others wanting to join in the creating.  Put the canvases away, and handed out ATC’s along with watercolor pencils.  Everyone wants to create — I think it’s in our nature.
