Photo Monday – Artists at Work

I’ve been meaning to try some of the activities from a great book I bought : The Artful Parent. (While you’re there, check out the blog.  It’s great.)  Somehow, I managed two this week!  One of them was set up so I could cook in peace.  No pictures there.  The other one.  Brace yourselves.  Action painting with fly swatters!  They only worked for 20 minutes but I think they enjoyed it.  Souricette 1 had this look of complete satisfaction as she worked.  It must feel so liberating in a sense, whacking that paint covered fly swatter onto the paper.  No need to paint anything specific, just releasing energy…  I used my telephoto zoom so that I could get close without getting too close…  ISO higher than really required by the light because I wanted the camera to be speedy to catch the action.  So I set ISO to 200 and speed to 1/100.  The camera chose the aperture.
