I set up right outside my house on the sidewalk this afternoon. I wasn't out there for more than two minutes when my little neighbor called out: "Hey! whatcha doing? whatcha doing??"

"I'm painting that car in the you want to help me?" ..."Yeah!" (.....and he helped a lot )

A very fun day for both of you. And no need to go any farther than right outside your front door.

Ah....Teamwork!! You both did a wonderful job, Celeste!
Wish I had a neighbor like you when I was growing up! Heck...Wish I had a neighbor like you now! Lol!

What a sweet little helper. He will never forget the experience of helping a 'real' artist. You did a great thing to accept his assistance. Aren't kids great? Refreshing and so open to learning. Good stuff!

You have a great little neighbor there. Glad he could be of help in making your artwork. It's really a good piece, too.
