Unlikely Combination

Well, not really. The buon fresco painting technique is nothing new. And that's kind of what Jilly and Daddy got to do today!

With a former art major and contractor as my husband, we often have a unique mix of things around the house. Jillian has taken to carrying around a bucket of drywall mud. Because she likes buckets.

Daddy was home today and suggested that we cover the coffee table so she could play with it (supervised, of course). And then he added some of her washable tempera paints to add some color. And voila! A masterpiece!!

Jillian adding some finishing touches to Daddy's clouds.

A bit of collaboration.

Behold...the finished work of art.
