payton and nana time

 

would you like to try painting

I asked my precious granddaughter

oh yes nana.. she replied

we brought out the paints

the shells she collected so carefully everyday

at our lake ‘beach house’

I showed her

how to clean her brush

after each colour

she was a fast learner

and we painted our hearts out

 we discussed our favorite colours

our favorite shells

and talked about life

as she learned the most

 important lesson

in painting

is

how you hold your tongue
