6" x 9" watercolor - Sold
This painting was a commission for a special Father's Day gift. I love that sweet, sleeping baby, her whispy hair, and that tiny furrow in her brow that makes me wonder what thoughts her little infant head might be thinking while she dreams. But most of all I love that adoring look in Dad's eyes that says there is nothing more precious in his world than this little girl.
Being the mother of all boys myself, and watching a LOT of wrestling matches, lightsaber fights, and other such boy-ness going on between my husband and sons I've often wondered what it must be like for a father and a daughter. Does he feel more protective of her than his sons? Does he worry more about her the closer she gets to that dating age?
And the hormones, the crying, and the mood swings. Does it make him shake his head and ask himself, what is up with that??
Maybe one day I'll find out when my own son's grow up and have a daughter of their own.
That will be one spoiled little girl if this future Grandma (can't believe I just called myself that, I'm 31 people. . . 31!!) has anything to say about it.
Until Thursday! Huzzah!!
