Color overload

One of my favorite Sunday activities
is going to the city with Manolo and the boys.
More so if it includes a visit to the Market
(Mercado de Medellin).
I love spring and sandal wearing weather!

I love the picture of the squash! What kind are they? Would you mind if I painted those?

I had an art teacher in college that I'll never forget: He said I used TOO much color. I stared at him and gawked...I had no idea that was possible, or that any art teacher could have such a thought! Can you imagine?

The fruit displays are amazing. Do they ever topple? I love sandals, too. Where I live we could wear them today, but yesterday it was snow boots --- ah, spring!

The fruit in organize so perfectly, I'd hate to be the one to pull the wrong piece, and have them all come tumbling down.

I adore the beautiful colors of you daily world. I've been following your blog for about a month now and love how your children are so involved with their art.

Did you give them better quality art supplies when they were younger by any chance? I have a 4 and 6 yr. old myself, that adore drawing and painting. I splurged and got them a little better quality paint brushes and water paints. Wondering if I'm a bit nutty for doing so ^_^.

To me there is no such thing as color overload. Too much color is never enough - aaah!!! Gorgeous pictures. I wonder how long it takes to stack the fruits like that - what a creative way to present it!
