simple things photo challenge

I’ve become a bit of an OCD mom, I admit.  It makes me crazy when he gets super messy and as a result, we’ve never really painted together at home (other than paint with water).  Logan paints at school occassionally, so I convinced myself he was getting the creative time he needed.  Plus I’m free with the markers and crayons – for some reason those weren’t as scary to me!
But yesterday it occurred to me that if I got some decent washable paints, it couldn’t be all that bad.  So I broke down and got them and we’ve gone on a painting fest since then.  All in all, he’s pretty careful with his painting, so I don’t know why I was worried in the first place.  I love that he’s so free with adding and mixing colors.  He’s been big on asking me what certain color combinations make.  So I love that he can see it for himself.
By the way, I’ve become completely obsessed with Lightroom presets.  This one was treated with “Matt’s Vintage Style” from Lightroom Killer Tips.
