looking for the good
Calliope squeezed Urania’s knee under the table and gave her a don’t-say-it look. After Paintist penciled flutter and flower on thin sketch paper, Thalia encouraged her to add some color… which she did… and now numerous pages of the sketchbook were water wrinkled.
“Thalia,” said Calliope, “it’s beautiful. Thanks for suggesting we get out the paints. That was fun!”
Then she whispered to Urania, “Next time we’ll start our sketch on watercolor paper… or tear the page out before we paint.”
