Inside the Artists Studio

Dear Olive,
You are so lucky to have a friend like Mel. She lets you into her studio, she lets you use her paints, and she calls you an artist.
(See Mels own work here and here.)








PS Mel drew a cat on the canvas, and you painted it in.

Oh, I just want to go in that studio and play with paint too. I really like the cut of your friend Mels jib.

What a clever, wonderful woman Mel is. In my Kindergarten we always used those terms {artist, sculptor, designer etc.} to instil confidence and ignite passion. And Olive, my my, what a beautiful painting. Talented indeed x

My girl would love this! How nice that it's on canvas too, easy for you to hang on the wall. Olive has a nice eye for colour!

Well, that is the most stylish smock I've ever seen. Nothing sweeter than a little one's face/stance as they are creating...Funny, I have that same oilcloth tablecloth (bought in Miami years ago) - and it's on our balcony (just posted about spending mornings out there and you can glimpse it in the pics...omg. daggy that i'm doing snaps on tablecloths - or daggy that I referenced a post? cringe!) x
