who thought this was a good idea?

letting a 6-month-old finger paint….

well, I thought it would be cute.
This is the aftermath.
and the final work of art
I think I have a little Jackson Pollock on my hands.
For the record I just dipped his hands in paint and turned the paper for him. He is really into smacking surfaces with his open palm so “painting” worked well. At the end I tried to make the single black hand print by covering his palm in black paint but he thought it was more fun to smear it.
