Watercolors

Here are some paintings by Hannah. The first one is a family of anacondas. I know this because while Hannah was painting it she was singing "Purple Anaconda, Mama Anaconda, Dada Anaconda, Uncle Pete Anaconda . . . " She also mentioned a "Nanaconda" and a "Hannahconda." If you squint real hard you can see them.
This next one I like to call "Conversing Paint Brushes."  She painted it with a baby paint brush and a Mama paint brush, and her technique involved dipping Baby Paint Brush in the paint, putting it on the paper, and then chasing it with Mama Paint Brush. Then the paint brushes spoke in high pitched voices: "Hi Mama. I'm running. See? Weeeeee! You wanna run? No? Ok. How 'bout potty? You wanna potty? No. Yes. No. Yes. NO! Ok, how 'bout chocolate. I'm running Mama. See?"
Artistic soul that she is, Hannah likes to paint at least 2 or 3 times a week. What do I do when there is no more room on the refrigerator? I do what any good mother would do. I cut her paintings into (heart-shaped) pieces. . . 

And re-purpose them for Valentines. :) Hannah did the gluing, of course. I'll tell you what the baby glue said to the Mama glue another time. Happy Valentine's!
