artist at work

Tiz loves to draw, so Kim bought her an easel. She mastered chalk and crayons and now she's graduated to watercolors.  

We've had amazing weather, so we're spending a lot of time out on the patio... the mature trees in our yard diffuse the afternoon sun for great lighting in shots like this. Of course, Kim gets the photo credit (when they're this good, you can bet she was behind the lens).

Tiz is really into how things work. After Kim showed her just once, she methodically dipped her brush in the water, then the color, then brought it to the paper over and over.  It's so fun watching her figure stuff out.  Now I understand why so many parents say this is their favorite age.
