This week our family & I are heading to Iceland for vacation. My husband & I have been before & love it there. We are excited to take our daughter to see the geysers & walk the ice tunnel, but our main reason for going is to try our luck at seeing the Northern Lights. There is no guarantee that we will see them, but we are hopeful & eager. I have been telling our daughter all about them & showing her photos on the computer. “Oooooh, that’s pretty mama!” They certainly are. They also made a great subject for a painting with our new homemade watercolors.
We pulled up various pictures of the lights & we looked at them together. “It looks like a rainbow, mama.” Mai picked a picture that she liked & looked at it as she painted stripes of color up & down her page.
We painted a few different paintings & experimented with color & blending the paints together.
When our paintings were finished, we cut out silhouettes of trees & glued them on top of our lights.
Cross your fingers for us that we get to see them on our trip.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
This came out gorgeous and seriously love your rendition of Northern Lights here!! 🙂
Thank you, Janine. They did come out great. She loved using her new paints.
