2 Year Old Abstract Art

One of the things I envisioned for my office / craft room was some artwork made by little man. While I was visiting, I picked up the supplies and let him get messy.

Two of the finished pieces of Little Man's artwork.

I gave him one colour at a time. We did 6 canvases so one colour per sitting was the limit for his attention span.

I love the pout he gets when he's concentrating
and his hair after just getting up from a nap.

My mama (that's Grammie to him) and I gave him suggestions like “Why don’t you paint on this side?” or “I think you should use more of that colour.” but that was about it. The rest was all him.

The six pieces, before adding the white paint/water mixture.

After we had our 6 colours done, I wanted something to tone it down a bit. I mixed a little bit of white paint in a lot of water. He used a loofa to sponge the white mixture onto the paintings.

Three pieces with the white mixture drying.

VoilĂ . I kept two for myself and gave one each to my brother, (ex) sister-in-law, and both sets of grandparents. I love my new pieces of art and can't wait to get them displayed in my office / craft room.
