A surprising art trade
Awhile back, the girls did this art project where we looked at Mia Christopher’s beautiful ink painting as inspiration for creating our own. Somehow Mia came across the post and sent a sweet email letting us know how much she loved the project. She asked if the girls might be interested in doing a little trade. The girls packaged up their paintings, wrote a cute note and mailed them to Mia. Days later a package arrived containing a few original paintings, a beautiful card and a handful of stunning prints. The girls were thrilled! I was so moved by Mia’s kindness. Her work is beautiful and will continue to be an inspiration as the girls learn about color, balance and the simple beauty of art.
Do you look at artwork with your children? Does it inspire paintings of their own? I’d love to hear!
