Is this Painting Ruined or Okay?

This Karen Appleton inspired piece was painted for the sake of a video I was making. After completing it, my 2 year old picked up a paint brush and started marking on it. What do you think of this piece now? is it Ruined?

It's fine
Frame and keep it.

Leave it as it is, intact, keep it forever.
Paint it again if you want to.

In twenty-five years, wrap it up and give it as a wedding present.

Another vote for saving it as is for some good memories later. I liked the idea of giving to them as a wedding gift!

If you're going to toss it, please email me; I'd love to have it, and will pay shipping.

Re: Is this Painting Ruined or Okay?

An oil painting is almost never ruined by applying oil paint to it. Just allow it to thoroughly dry, and paint over it, with the original colors. Or....do as nearly everyone else suggests: save it as is.

I agree! Save it. It contains much more meaning now as it will forever be a piece created by both you and your child!

Re: Is this Painting Ruined or Okay?

you guys are awesome! I love the wedding gift idea!
What I like about it is that it has more story behind it now it has been worked on by a 2 year old!
My 6 year old did the same thing when she was 3. except it was blue crayon across the painting!

😂 Did the blue crayon fit the color scheme? Your 2yo was kind enough to use the correct paints at hand!

She was only trying to tell you to loosen up a bit. Listen to your new mentor!
