People pay big money for folk art, though you may have to wait 40 years.

Too bad. Now they're too valuable to put out in the yard. Maybe you can sell them to her Grandma.

Too bad she didn't put a base coat on first although I particularly like the one that she worked the knot/wood coloration into a mountain in the background.

That is a real treasure. Be sure to keep these photos for her later years!

If you ever paint over them you'll never hear the end of it.

I started a tradition last year with my 4 kids, each year they get to decorate a super, I gave them a bunch of acrylic paints and some brushes and they had at it. I wanted to do it to honey supers so they don't have to live outside in the winters, just a few months each summer. Each one has the child's name and age on it. I painted the base coat first. Lots of fun to see what they come up with.

Now see, who said this wasn't a hobby for the whole family. Ditto on the clear coats. I'm pretty sure it would be some kinda sac-religious to change anything! Don't be embarrassed... bee proud! It doesn't get much better than that!
