The Kid and His Art


This week I introduced Parker to some new ‘all in one paint brushes.’ These brushes have the washable paint inside of them, so all a kid has to do is paint!

Uh. Yeah. We are still working on the proper grip thing.

And notice how Parker’s art pad is bigger than he is?

sigh…. Yeah. We’re working on that too.

Do you know how you can spot the true artists from the wannabes?


True artists always have their feet beautifully painted, of course.


And the completed masterpiece.

  1. Suitable for framing!!!!!

    There is a fundraiser for you….you know how they have animals at the zoo paint pictures and then sell them??? Why not sell some of Parker’s creations?? And maybe you can even have “custom” orders in the buyer’s choice of colors. I know I’d TOTALLY buy one! :)

  2. Love those feet! My baby must be a real artist, too . . .

  3. You need to take pictures of Parkers art and then upload them to Once you have a full collection of art, then make a picture book! This would be great fun for you and great memories.

    My kids love, love, love to get new picture books! I usually make one for birthdays, special events, one for each quarter of the year and this year I plan to make one for each kid with school projects and art.

  4. Good job Parker! I think I love your feet the very best!

  5. There’s nothing better than little one’s feet is there? Especially when they’re scribbled on like that :)

    Good Job Parker :)

  6. Lovely job, dear Parker! My favorite, sweet boy, is your feet! WTG! Keep up the good work. Hugs from your friend, Elliot and his momma!

  7. I just put out a call for questions on my blog and now I have one for you! I notice that in some pictures Parker’s air hose is a large blue one, and in some pictures it’s a thin clear one attached to a green cylinder. I am hopelessly ignorant; what is difference between them?
    Also, his picture is so cute! I think it is a sea dragon with two baby sea dragons frolicking in the ocean. :)

  8. Oh, I LOVE it Tammy! He did such a great job :D I’m a sucker for magic markered feet too (well, as long as they’re not mine!)

    I’m so glad you joined in — Parker sure has that artistic flair down ;)

  9. The squirt guns were a riot! The boys want to go out again tonight and run around in their underwear! Daddy cringes, but I told him – the boys are little and it isn’t a problem! They did love the squirt guns and had a great time!

  10. Awesome pic Parker! The brushes are neat. Where did you find them? I agree the pics would make a great fundraiser. I’d buy one!

  11. How cute is that!

  12. Trish says:

    What a wonderful creation! And painting your feet is the most fun, I have to agree with Parker. ;)

  13. Ya know if he disappears, you better look over here. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE him!

  14. Hey Tammy, I sent you a time sensitive email, but I haven’t heard back, I am just worried I sent it to the wrong place. Could ya email me at lakotajo2 at msn dot com? I have something for you guys!

  15. Painting your feet is the best part! Love the artwork, way to go Parker!

  16. Awww Parky – it’s a masterpiece! Love it! Especially the body art – that is best ;) Hugs!!!

  17. So cute! My son was painting the other day, and ended up with paint on his arms, legs, shorts, shirt and his face. Oh, and his paper had some, too.

  18. Hey Tammy!
    You need to email me your mailing address so I can send you the precious moment that you won!

  19. PARKER! What a beautiful picture! I love it :) And your feet, just beautiful!! Perfect job sweetie :)
