Day 352 Megan Inspires Me


Megan Inspires Me
Oil on Gessobord
6" x 6"


My youngest daughter Megan has been showing some consistant interest in oil painting, much to my delight. So for Christmas we got her a pochade box and paints. The other day she grabbed on orange, sat it on the counter and started painting (see below). I thought it was such a fun composition I decided to try it too, with Megan's permission of course.
