Featuring: M! Edition #1

M really loves to sit next to me and watch me do my crafts.  A lot of the time he’ll ask to do his own craft, and we’ll sit side-by-side in a crafty zone!  Just about every day I hear, “Can we paint something?”  I thought it would be fun to feature some of his artwork and crafts every once in a while.

I‘m calling this one:  Abstract Dinosaur Art.  But keep reading and you’ll see what name he gave it. He really explored color mixing with this one, and it was his first time painting with stencils. He painted this about a month ago when he was 3. He just recently had a birthday.  I was painting my canvas for the DIY Wall Art – Textured Mixed Media post at the time.

I should mention, when you ask him to smile for pictures, he gives a big cheesy smile with a scrunched up nose. So I told him to do a little smile.  It’s better, but not his natural smile. He’s still cute, though!

Look at that awesome stenciling talent for a first-timer.  I really think it was creative how he stenciled them in one color and then went over it in another to create the green outlines.

Love the layering of colors.

Awesome!

And here’s a little interview with M, talking about his painting in his own words:

What is your favorite thing about your painting?
I like all the dinosaurs.
What’s your favorite color in the painting?
Blue, red, green.  I like three.
What is your painting called?
Just, Dinosaur Picture
How did you make it?
I painted it with colors… and made it with the stencils.
Do you remember painting it with me?

Yeah.  I like painting with you, not by myself.
What else do you want to tell me about your painting?
Hang it up!

And that I will do!
