What I Learned from Finger Painting with my Two Year Old

With twenty fingers working together, ten big and ten small, I learned to let go of control. When I started feeling attached to a part of the painting a tiny thumb would inevitably smear across it or a pinky nail would scrape part of it away. After a few deep breaths I finally released my attachment to how I thought the finished painting should look and we had a blast painting together. I hope to remember this freedom as I continue painting.
