Desert Scenes with Sisters

We are settled into our new place, and I have finally finished decorating. Mr. Handsome's paintings, as well as some framed pictures, are looking great on our walls! I put away most of my store-bought decorations because I much prefer his artwork.

Speaking of painting, Mr. Handsome has now done several art lessons with his two youngest sisters. Earlier this year, I shared photos of the ships that he helped them paint, and last year I showed off their hand-drawn parrots. They have also done lighthouses and beach scenes.

Just before we moved, we visited my in-laws for a wedding, and Mr. Handsome gave Mae and Lena a step-by-step painting lesson. They created the desert landscapes shown below. Mr. Handsome was thrilled with the girls' work. It's a simple scene but quite unique.

Since then, my husband has painted landscapes from our Canadian Rocky Mountain adventure, as well as three ship scenes that he says represent his best work (coming to the blog soon!)

My in-laws' chickens kept Mr. Handsome and the girls company during their outdoor painting lesson.

    The paintings are great!! Mr Handsome taking time with his sisters is wonderful he is not only teaching them to paint but investing in their lives and that is very special. Way to go Mr Handsome!!

    1. Thanks, Shela. Even though they are quite a few years apart, it's neat to see the bond that my husband has with his little sisters!

    I Love Seeing Their Beautiful Sibling Duo Bond!
    I was wondering where your husband and your in-laws buy your art supplies? Art supplies can be expensive, so I was just wondering if you could give us some advice.

    1. I do, too. :) We buy all our art supplies at Hobby Lobby. Their sales and 40% off coupons make their products very affordable.

      I wouldn't give Hobby Lobby a dime, but that's my decision. Obviously you don't mind their corporate practices or the way the owner removes and collects cultural artifacts from other countries.
