I don't even know what to say.
I was there at the innocent inception of this painting,
but I didn't see it coming.
David and I were helping in Bren's class
During center time,
Bren made a b-line for the art center.
There she began her symetry painting.
I was gabbing with the teacher
about how I was happy she was going to do some
colorful painting because there is a wall
in my kitchen that I would like to use to feature
some of my kid's artwork in frames.
Words I wish I could pop back in my mouth right now!
I watched as Bren plopped some colorful paint lines
onto one side of the white paper.
Blue, yellow, red...
this was going to look amazing on my wall!
It looked almost like three people,
and when she folded the paper in half
there would be six....
one for each person in her family.
she folded the unpainted side of the paper
over the painted side to make a symetrical print.
And that's when I saw it!
Somehow, her adorable, creative painting
no longer looked like six people.
Her masterpiece hung to dry in the classroom
until Monday afternoon when it came home
in Bren's backpack.
Bren proudly handed it to me
and with much fan-faire,
I ohhhed and ahhhed over her color choices
while David and both of my sons
could hardly breathe from laughing so hard!
I have six colorful and surprisingly anatomically correct,
that I'm expected to frame and hang in my kitchen!
