Emelia has been painting up a storm and her new favorite subject matter is the two of us.
You might think this was a pair of snazzy ducks but in fact it is me and Emelia under a blue sky and fluffy white clouds dancing on a field of tulips.
The only part she's not quite happy with is that her hair isn't the right color. Mine is right, she says, since I dye it...but she didn't have the right shade of brown to get her's quite right.
The next one is a little worn and wrinkle as it's aged over the last 6-7 years hanging on our refrigerator.
A gift one Mother's Day from Max. I'm a little more proportionally sized but still came out with a Gru like nose and wearing a full body suit at the beach,
They might see a duck or a large nosed giant when they look at me but they also both always add smiles and open arms when they paint me and at the end of the day (which it is..the very end of the day) that is all that I could hope for.
I wonder if I could paint myself with as much joy?
