Why I Sometimes Feel Bad About My Parenting

I don't enjoy my son's artistic aesthetic.

Obviously, he's very expressive and also obviously, he's having a good time.  But why does everything have to be black and grey?  And why doesn't he like brushes?

And why does he almost always end up taking a bath in paint such that I have to basically clean every surface in my home after a painting session?

Still, I feel good that I still keep doing art with him despite how much I actually don't enjoy it.  One of these days he'll paint a rainbow, right?

(P.S., This session involved non-kid acrylics on Pacon construction paper from Blick.  There's a mark left on the wall that I'll never be able to remove.)
