Mud pies


The best things in life are free ...
The topic of children enjoying mud reminded me of a painter I like, Lee So-Ji, who paints scenes of traditional Korean country life including children catching grasshoppers, or just looking at frogs.  So I borrowed a little bit from his palette and style for these two.  He loves to add a splash of red.  Author/illustrator Melissa Sweet also says ... "If a painting isn't working - add a little more red!"
