Birthday Party Painters
Juliet is one of the kids who comes to my studio to paint with me every so often. So as part of her recent tenth birthday celebration, her mom arrange for one segment of the party to take place in my studio. First order of business, signing the guestbook. Everybody got to choose a different colored pencil for writing her name.
Making room for ten girls and all their painting paraphernalia took some doing, but we managed. The piano top had to do double duty as a painting table, and Pam, Juliet’s mom, caught a couple of the young artists in the midst of their work
The floor proved to be a great place for stretching out and mixing it up with pencils and paints.
Juliet really got her hands into the paint, in much the same way that I like to do.
At the end of the afternoon everybody got to choose a mini neon painting that Pam had commissioned me to make as remembrances of their birthday party studio experience.
The end result? A good time was had by all, and they declared it a birthday party to remember! Here are the girls’ paintings. Some are completed, but others had to be finished at home.

That’s all that matters Rennie – you have given them a memory that will quite possibly last a lifetime!
Maybe. One thing I’m told is that they’re still talking about that experience as the best birthday party ever, and it was fun!

So sweet. Just think, you awoken the artist in them…
So do I! But they’re all busy with school and kid stuff now, so I see less of them.
Wonderful, Rennie. Wish you lived in the vicinity of my little artists:)
