This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Requires PETS EP! Not compatible with FreeTime at this time.
Extensively play-tested.

If you downloaded the kids easel before 11/15/07, please redownload. I apparently missed one line of code in the BHAV and it was erroring. Now fixed. All other easels were retested just in case and are fine.

Are you bored with the same old, same old paintings your sims create? Can't quite accept seeing a high-creativity child turn out a Picasso? Just want something different up on those walls without having to stage still lifes and fiddle with your game folders? Have a sim who needs help in his evil plans to exploit the neighborhood's tourist population by making them pay to paint and then selling those same paintings back to them? Your salvation is nigh.

These five easels each have their own twelve custom paintings that sims will create automatically, just like the Maxis easel. They do not overwrite the Maxis paintings and any combination of the five can be used. See the thumbnails below for results.

Please note: both files in each easel's .rar must be installed for these easels to work. If you only install the easel file and not the canvas file, your game will error into oblivion. If you install only the canvas file and not the easel file, you won't see anything.

Terms of Use:
Do not upload alone or as part of any file to any site which charges for pay content. This includes (but is not limited to) TSR, regardless of whether the lot you are uploading is being charged for or for free. Otherwise, my creations are free use items and can be uploaded to the Exchange or to 100% free sites. While credit is most definitely appreciated and should be included if required by the sites' policies, I personally do not require such.

Thanks to Echo for her key advice that made these possible.
Thanks also to my eight painter sims: you painted for a week straight, through wind and rain, without breaks to eat or socialize.
