This week, the Lidl was selling canvases in all sizes as well as oil paint and aquarel paint, and all very cheap compared to what I remember it cost when I was a teenager. So I decided to introduce the kids to the good old practice of painting pictures. Naturally, they immediately started, and occupied the table with paint, brushes, palettes (old plates) and their work. They even bought extra canvases from their pocket money, oh, and also stained the towels in the bathroom. All while I still have an empty white canvas sitting on the corner of my desk, waiting for when I have time! And of course for when I figure out what to paint.
