Magic Marker Monday — Goodbye Summer…

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

The oldest said goodbye to summer this year with a twist… literally.

She had painted this sunny/cloudy day painting and I uploaded it to the computer and pulled it up in photo editing.

I left the room for a minute and when I came back, it looked like this…

She won’t tell me what she did, but she says it’s a “goodbye to summer” painting “showing summer swirling down the drain”.

She’s not happy about summer being over. Can you tell?

I am having trouble keeping a straight face. No mincing words for her! I am imagining the wailing sound of unhappy summer lovers.
