Acrylic paint on plain white paper. Painted by Josiah Smith, 2 years old on October 10, 2013.
One of the advantages of working a part-time schedule, is the opportunity to spend quality time with my 2-year old son. This morning, we played “choo-choos” with his Thomas & Friends Take ‘n Play set while watching Disney’s Jessie on Netflix. Wanting to do something to engage his learning, I asked Josiah if he wanted to do flash cards. He said no. I asked him if he wanted to paint and he nodded his head while emphatically saying yes. The image above is what he produced. And it all started with the color orange. When asked what this is a picture of, Josiah said, “Punkin.”
