Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Henry Ward Beecher (American, Liberal US Congregational minister, 1813-1887)

TIME:  11:56 AM
PLACE:  Downtown
SUBJECT: (R-L) StellaDella, MonkeyBoy, DramaQueen

Since 2002, our city hosts "Art On The Square", a fine arts show each year in May.  This year's event was held this weekend.  After Sunday School, we went downtown with the family to view the art.  At one end of the fair, there was a mural for the children to paint that I believe will be displayed at a future "Wine, Dine and Jazz" event.  StellaDella was on that at once, while her sister and brother took a little more persuading.  When I asked the older two if they wanted to help paint, DramaQueen sighed, rolled her eyes and said "Ohhh, I guess." and MonkeyBoy just shrugged his shoulders and said "OK".  Deliver me from the pre-teen ennui.
