Fingerpainting, Joy, and Playful Creativity

"Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
- Pablo Picasso

There is something almost magical about the playful creativity of children. Whenever I look at my two year old son's paintings (pictured below), I see his joyful innocence.  He doesn't know what colors complement each other or any other traditional art techniques.  He is simply having fun playing with colors.

Gazing upon his artwork gives me an insight to the wondrous world of his imagination.  It's this playful creativity that I'd like him to hold onto, develop, and apply to not just his future career, but every meaningful thing he will do.
