First Oil Painting

Santa gave Hana an oil painting canvas, complete with paint board and 5 colors. And this is her very first oil-painting.
She obviously is very proud of it, working with ‘adult’ paint that you have to mix yourself in order to get different colors.
It is a tree, or actually two trees, with a horse and a man in the foreground. This painting was accomplished with some cheating; an example was printed on the front. But as a first oil-painting, not bad at all. She took is to school to share it with her class on the first day of the new year.
I thought she’d share her trip to Holland over Christmas, or a Christmas tree, or dinner with all her cousins, but no, there were priorities. “You are allowed to share only one thing,” she said, “and so I will share my oil-painting.”
