The house has been abuzz with the rumor that Van Gogh was murdered in his time.

I went and volunteered at the elementary school, and I was inspired to do the project the fifth graders were doing, but tiny-sized!

Basically, I just folded a paper into fours, drew a tree on it in pencil, and cut it.  Winter, spring, summer, fall, with watercolors.  Then I used a toothpick to do the leaves, and a thin brown magic marker to fill in the tree!  I mounted it on black construction paper, a little bit apart.  It's a pretty cool project, sure to liven up any itty bitty home.  I did other stuff too... but I don't want to show you until it's finished.  But I've gotta tell you, I'm excited!
Happy arting!
