Little Reminders

This is my niece and inspiration for everything I do, Tabitha. 

She and my beautiful sister, Melissa came to visit me last week from Colorado; naturally we had to finger paint while she was out here.  Seeing her get so excited to paint without even so much as an idea of what she was going to paint was really kind of mind blowing. 

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the whats, whys and hows that I forget why I started to paint in the first place, because I enjoy it.  She was a welcome reminder to not take things so seriously and that sometimes you just need to throw some paint around, get messy and see what happens!
