Maria's Christmas Gift



For Christmas, Maria received some art supplies and a watercolor book from her grandma (aka, the Queen Mother) since she loves anything creative like her grandma. She did her first watercolor (above) last night using the book and tips from Grandma. I think today, we'll go get some masking fluid so she can "paint" white.

P.S. Happy Birthday Aunt Michaela!

That's beautiful, Maria. Katie got watercolors, too. You two will have to open an art gallery someday.

I (Elizabeth) am so impressed (and excited) with Maria's watercolor!! It is absolutely awesome and I'm looking forward to more in the future!
