Painting!!!
(Don’t worry, I’m not painting)

Who would have thought painting would bring such ecstatic joy to Bee? I don’t meant that giggling happiness she so frequently entertains us with; I’m talking the Greek roots of the word here:

ecstasy, n. /ˈɛkstəsɪ/
The state of being ‘beside oneself’
Greek ἔκστασις, < ἐκστα- stem of ἐξιστάναι to put out of place Seriously, Bee just was gone. She was painting away, and not hearing a word we were saying. Asking her if she wanted another piece of paper was futile; and if one of us didn't hold on to her while the other changed the paper she just kept painting the easel. The girl was totally gone; just like me when I go into the design bunker. Like father, like daughter... thomas-knauer-sews-bee-paints-1

    That’s too cute Thomas – she’s definitely an artist! And okay, kinda weird question – is that a real dog in the last picture?

      Dear god no!!! Last thing we need is another artist; I’m still gunning for Supreme Court Justice for her.

      And no that isn’t a real dog. She is my wife’s stuffed Afghan Hound from when she was little. She was named Daisy, but has been renamed Wolfa Speaks by Bee. Bee is rather fond of the PBS show Martha Speaks

    Might have something to do with the fact that you slathered her bare feet with paint and had her producing original works by age three weeks…

    So adorable! Interesting use of colour too (meaning it’s not all blended into an interesting shade of brown) and she uses the whole paper (and easel!) as well. Also: tell me that is not a real dog there in the background of the last photo!

      She has long been an impressive painter/drawer/sculptor. Already far more talented than I have ever been.

      (Please don’t let her want to be a freakin’ artist!!!)
