I love having the easel easily accessible. So does Buga. She often asks to get her paints out (I don't leave the acrylic ones out all the time). It is a special project, but she has really enjoyed playing and experimenting lately. I have since added more colors, but actually like the simplicity of four. I like that she doesn't spend as much time figuring out which color to use, and more time on her strokes, figures, and combinations of color. Either way, it's magical. I loved this creation so much that I took a picture of it. And have a video of the artist in action.
