My girls love to do any type of art! So, this year, I'm trying to incorporate more meaningful art.
We've been traveling around the world, learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans.
We read Miss Rumphius and decided to make the world more beautiful by painting our own lupines!
I found our inspiration from Fine Lines.
First, we primed our surface with white chalk.
Then, we covered the surface with warm oil pastels.
Next, we painted on the stems and leaves.
Once they were dried, the girls had a blast creating flowers with their fingertips. They decided on pink and lavender lupines.
With the pink and lavender lupines still wet, they quickly dipped their thumbs into white paint and dotted it on top of each lupine flower. We opted not to draw the black circles around each flower.
I adore the way their masterpieces turned out!

Of course, I had to make one too!
I'm in the process of looking for a frame that will fit all three paintings, together! I love decorating our house with homemade masterpieces and can't wait to hang this one in our dining room.
