presents for the grandfather that has it all

My father turned 60 in september and I couldn't think of a single present. So kidcraft it was.. I let my kids put a basecolour on a cheap plain canvas. Then son collaged his design and daughter used felt tips. They then improved with paints. To make it a real present I added some cheap frames from our local artshop. They were about a tenner and they used to be mightily expensive.

Funniest thing is my dad works for a company that has an extensive artcollection (and it's own full time conservator). He took these to hang in his office which is full of museum quality art. So much fun!!!
