Christine...check out our art website....

...and there you can click on "7th grade painting". Although the age
difference is apparent, you can get an idea of how we "hid" our animals
using diff. shapes and patterns. The kids really enjoy looking at Bev's work
and probably MORE so than any other artist keeps their rapt attention.

The finished product is 9x12" and takes us 3 weeks to complete in five 45
min. periods a week. Toodles.....Bunki
