It happens that the Friday Family Fun Foto challenge is about Toddler Art. Isn't it funny that my last post was about Laina and her painting? So, I'll post the picture of the painting here for the FFFF challenge. If you want to see what she looked like after she finished this painting you can scroll down to the next post and see the picture.

So, without further ado--Laina's first painting.

Notice the vibrancy of colors and the use of a limited palette. This has nothing to do with the mother dictating to the artist that she can only use 4 colors because we don't want all the other colors dumped all over the back patio. Notice the abundant shading and blending of colors from one corner to the next. The artist also used a variety of tools to create the various textures: skin, hair, fingers, fingernails, paintbrushes, paper and diapers. You can see 2 very distinct hand prints and fingernail scratches.

THE ARTIST HERSELF posing with her artwork.

This painting is not for sale, but if you'd like one like it for a price, I can probably arrange that. I have an in with the artist and can pull some strings. Just let me know.
