Guest Artist, Emmy

Had the chance to paint in the company of two amazing artists this morning, one of whose work is featured here today.

Exuberant, extroverted, and energetic, 6-year-old Emmy loves to paint and color, and currently has work on exhibit in the gallery space above the loveseat in the family room in her new home:

She is getting NEW roller skates TODAY, has lost two teeth, and has a passion for toasting mini marshmallows over the fire in the backyard fire pit. In addition to being accomplished as an artist, she has terrific reading skills; a favorite book is Ten Tiny Tickles.

Her new art is featured below:

    1. Joje, thanks for your comments. I shared them with the artist whose smile grew as I read to her! I'll share another of her drawings with you in an email.

  2. I love each and everyone of these. If only I could paint with such carefree abandon! Love the hunt, those colors make my mouth water... thinking of jellybeans and other goodies. Balloon is a standout, the strong blue shape, and the repeating scribbles. Awesome! I love how she filled your squares in garden. Looks like a fun session!

    1. Sheila, that carefree abandon, along with unselfconscious confidence, is one of the big gifts of sitting around the art table or out on the lawn creating with my granddaughters. Emmy thoroughly enjoying receiving your comments; thank you!
