During one particularly rainbow-crazed week (they come in spurts), I began thinking more about rainbows and my own art making practices; When was the last time I had made a rainbow? After considering this for some time, I realized that I hadn't drawn, painted, sculpted, or collaged a rainbow since I was 9 or 10 years old. WOW. Why was that? I still don't really know the answer...maybe it seemed too "little kid" for my middle and high school self to handle? Maybe I lost interest? Regardless of the reason, I decided that it was high time to paint a rainbow--resulting in the finished painting pictured above!
Guess what? Those little artists I teach are onto something! Painting rainbows is incredible fun--and easy to do! If you haven't painted or colored a rainbow in a few years (or more), I highly recommend it! Get any piece of paper you can find and any sort of colors (crayons, markers, paints, etc) and just take 5 minutes out of your day to make a rainbow! I guarantee you that it will lift your spirits and give that little kid inside of you a chance to play! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
