Sara’s Belly

I don’t know where this idea came from originally but Starr and I decided that we were going to paint Sara’s belly. I guess this is not an uncommon occurrence. Sometimes artists will take a casting of a pregnant woman’s belly and paint and decorate that.

So we gathered together at Sara’s house Sunday morning with a bunch of paints and no real plan.

We bounced around a bunch of ideas and the only clear one that came up was “anchor”. So with that in mind we set to painting.

Of course if there is a cat around, they have to assist in the painting process as much as possible.

Here is the process at the point of the first break:

and the pictures that Sara took. These were taken with something called photobooth which must reverse the images:

We had a good time and learned a bit about painting bellies. Then right after we finished we had a great idea of another theme to do instead. So if Henry has not made his appearance yet in a couple of weeks we will try again. If not, it will just have to wait for the next willing belly to come along!
