Original Art for Hannah's Room

To complement Hannah's newly decorated pink bedroom, we created some original art to hang on the wall. The idea began when my mom suggested that Hannah help Jonathan paint. We didn't think that sounded like a good idea, but did think that Hannah could contribute to the decor.

So I got some blank canvases from the craft store, and Hannah set to work using the acrylic paint colors I used to make the princess castle mural on her wall. I prepped the canvases by painting them a uniform green for the background.

One canvas was covered with Hannah's hand prints, which I helped her make.

The other, she did entirely by herself. This was a joy to watch, as she painted what she identified as a ladybug, Winnie the Pooh's honey pot, and a piece of toast with butter. Now that is priceless modern art!

By the way, if you look closely at the wall behind Hannah, you can see Jonathan's latest painting project - two-toned green walls for the dining room. The chair rail went up yesterday, and it looks wonderful!
