Inspiration

The other day when I asked Scarlett what she wanted to do she instantly replied "let's paint in the garden!" That sounded like a perfect idea to me so we grabbed our supplies and headed out.Filled with inspiration from our surroundings we painted most of the afternoon. Butterflies and grapevines and sunshine seemed to be the theme.
I'm so grateful that she shares my love of painting. My heart swells watching her. Lately she's been asking for more direction on how to make her paintings look "real".
She's my inspiration. Constantly reminding me to look at the world with an open mind and an open heart.
