Paint Me A Picture

Pictures. They are a visual expression or reproduction of something we have seen either in our minds or in reality. They are cute, sad, friendly, fun, thought-provoking, imaginitive, and records of people, places, and things. We can photograph, draw, paint, and assemble them. We can also knit and crochet them….
