Patroness of the Arts
Posted on October 23rd, 2010
When I win the lottery or make a zillion dollars on book royalties (whichever occurs first), I will endow scholarships, grant grants, sponsor Science Friday on NPR, and all sorts of other fun rich person philanthropy stuff.
Until then, I will settle for putting out paint for my daughter whenever she asks, even if it’s the morning after getting a measly three hours of sleep. In fact, today she painted with (washable) paint, did Hello Kitty watercolors, and made a tremendous mess with decomposing flubber. (Re the Hello Kitty: I was out of white paper, so I ripped pages from a Hello Kitty coloring book. I was pleased she chose to paint Hello Kitty black.)
I ended up really liking the washable paint product, though. She did this one, as well as a simple handprint painting, that I think I’ll pick up some frames for – if we ever do make it to IKEA.
