Smart Art sends all sorts of different art supplies and project ideas out, so you never quite know what you will receive.  The painting boxes are always my favorite.  I wouldn’t say I am good at painting, but I do enjoy it.

I started out taking pictures of each Step on the instructions, but I got so into it that I forgot.  My husband was like what are you even doing?  I was like shhh, I am painting!  It doesn’t exactly look like a tree, but I love it.  It’s a “full-on Monet”.
