This photo was from a fun day in the studio getting our family ready for another Beerhorst Family art show. Daughter Pearl was behind the camera that day and Dove is holding the still life painting we actually sold out of that show and Grace is pretending to pluck out a tune on the little guitar that has since met it's demise.
We are planning to have our next family show/open house December 9, 10 and 11. We have been having these shows for several years now and they are always rewarding on several different levels. Etsy.com sent Tara out here this past May to film during our spring family art show. She made this lovely film from those three and half days she spent here hanging out and shooting.
One of the things we love about our family art shows is the way the children are able to get into the mix when is seems like children and adults are often separated out socially in our culture. Like that day when the disciples were shooing off the mothers with there troublesome children until Jesus put his foot down and told 'em to knock it off and let the kids hang out with them because he knew children are totally cool. We also think kids rock and yes they do tend to break things now and then but we are not suppose to get too attached to our stuff any way right?
