Not so 'Daily' Art blART - Out of the Closet

For the love of tiny treasures tucked away in musty closets, timeless tempera, and childhood memories........a painting from the past. 

 My Mom says this piece is not for sale....."it's priceless!" 

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain a child once we grow up.  ≈ Pablo Picasso

Have you ever watched a child paint?  Their complete and utter concentration?  The scribbles, the dabs, the dribbles.......the sweeping motion of the paint brush?  Oblivious to anything or anyone other than their new masterpiece?  It is a gift to watch a child paint with complete abandon.  Invest some time in your child today.  The memories and the masterpieces are "PRICELESS".
