Catch the moment

This morning George got up early (I had a good night sleep, thank goodness), and was feeling creative I guess.  He said he wanted to paint.

Why not?  7:30 in the morning?  I didn't have to go to work, what else should we have been doing? So he painted.


He made a picture of Thumper's family in their burrow from the book "Thumper and his Sisters"

We read the book a few nights ago and I was really happy to see him want to draw/paint a picture of something, because most of his recent artwork is more on the abstract side.

This is still pretty abstract, but when he points out what each shape is supposed to be, it's pretty easy to follow.  I'm happy that he can express himself and that I was patient and open to the idea of an early morning art session.  Hell, I'm most creative in the early morning, I shouldn't be surprised that he is too. 
When do you feel most creative?
