So a couple of weeks ago I pulled them out and we got to painting. Jonathan isn't so interested in that sort of art (he is very good at other kinds however) so he (and Ken) skipped out on the project but the rest of us enjoyed it.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ? "
Our little art project was pretty fun. It caused us to spend some time pouring over the bird books in deciding which ones to paint. We also studied them a little better in order to paint them. We are obviously not expert painters but each little project gives us a little more confidence to try other projects. Personally I prefer to decorate my house with things like this that we have made, like this, or things that are made, photographed or painted by people I know. To me they are much more interesting then some great piece of art that was mass produced.
I also just really enjoyed spending some creative time with my children working on this.
Do you like to paint or work on creative projects like this?
